Dr Ewan Harrison
Career Development Fellow
I am Career Development Fellow on a UKRI Innovation Fellowship as part of Cambridge Health Data Research (HDR) UK substantive site. I am also a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Medicine and a Honorary Fellow in the Department of Public Health and Primary Care at the University of Cambridge. I completed my PhD in 2010 on the genomics and pathogenesis of the opportunistic pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. My post-doctoral work at the University of Cambridge focused on the analysis of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) populations in animals and humans and tracking the transmission of MRSA in healthcare facilities using both computational and laboratory-based approaches. My current research focuses on the biology of S. aureus. In particular, I am interested in the biological basis of persistent nasal colonisation. To do this I am combining large cohort-based studies, microbiome sequencing, conventional microbiology and electronic health record data. I am also interested in understanding and overcoming mechanisms of beta-lactam resistance in S. aureus.
