It’s a real honour to be included amongst this amazing group of researchers. I am grateful to the Medical Research Foundation for this opportunity.
Dr Alison Mather
Group Leader and Food Standards Agency Fellow at the Quadram Institute

Dr Mather is a Group Leader and Food Standards Agency Fellow at the Quadram Institute, where she studies the evolution, origins and transmission of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and bacterial pathogens. Dr Mather takes a ‘One Health’ approach to AMR, using genomics to identify the contributions of humans, animals, food and the environment to the burden of AMR.

On being awarded the prize, Dr Mather said:

“It’s a real honour to be included amongst this amazing group of researchers. I am grateful to the Medical Research Foundation for this opportunity to develop new international collaborations and explore new directions for our research. AMR is a global problem and we need to work in partnership across disciplines and borders in order to understand how we can reduce the impact of resistant microbes.”
