Academic medical bacteriology

Working group study looking at academic bacteriology


The Council of the Academy of Medical Sciences convened a working group in 1999 to undertake an inquiry into academic bacteriology.

The Academy wished to see academic bacteriology in the UK develop as a research discipline and to encourage departments of medical microbiology to become involved in addressing the many exciting challenges.

The working group report, published in 2001, identified:

  • Major problems with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of infectious disease with clinical relevance for the UK and elsewhere
  • A major transformation in bacteriology research during the 1990s, with many exciting new technical developments and the introduction of genome-based approaches
