Current Research

Ian Connerton is the 2 Sisters Food Group Chair of Food Safety at the University of Nottingham where he leads the Food Microbiology and Safety Section. He has been involved in molecular biology research for more than 30 years. His current research interests include:

Food-borne zoonotic pathogens

The influence and therapeutic use of bacteriophage against zoonotic pathogens in the human food chain

The synthesis and delivery pathogen products to host cells and their molecular responses

Studies of host protein interactions

Enzyme technology in partnership with agri-food industries

Making use of the traditional benefits of biological catalysts (chemical specificity, mild reaction conditions and low environmental loads) for food applications

Food Safety research is a multidisciplinary activity requiring several skill-bases and therefore research at Nottingham takes advantage of skills within the Division of Food Sciences and the wider University.
