Professor Liz Sockett FRS s a bacteriologist who researches and teaches at Nottingham University. Liz is a Microbiology Society Member, Fellow of the .. Read more American Academy of Microbiology and Fellow of the Royal Society. Her research group works on the predatory bacterium Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus with funding from Wellcome Trust, DARPA, BBSRC and Leverhulme Trust. This bacterium naturally kills Gram negative bacteria and is coming to the fore in the fight against antibiotic resistance in Gram negative pathogens. Research interests include the application of Bdellovibrio as antibacterials to kill antibiotic resistant pathogens. Collaborating with Dr Andrew Lovering (at Birmingham University) and colleagues including Prof Waldemar Vollmer ( Newcastle University) and Dr Erkin Kuru- (formerly Indiana now Harvard University), she works on the fundamental understanding of how predatory enzymes kill Gram negative bacteria. Bdellovibrio have been researched as a solution to gram negative bacterial infections, including infections in zebrafish (working with Dr Serge Mostowy Imperial College) poultry (working with Dr Rob Atterbury, Nottingham Vet School, Laura Hobley, Nottingham Biosciences) and mushrooms.
