Sarah joined the Crook group in October 2015 having previously worked in Research Services' contracts team and completing a post-doc in the Porcher group at the WIMM.
She provides financial, strategic and operational management for the national and international consortium concentrating on improving tuberculosis diagnosis, and programme focussed on the investigation of complex antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacteriaceae. Projects include CRyPTIC: a ground breaking international collaboration investigating tuberculosis involving 20 international academic and 3 industry partners and REHAB an ambitious project investigating antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacteriaceae in the Thames valley ecosystem and includes cross-institutional working with Centre for the Environment and Hydrology and the Animal and Plant Agency.
