Louise Lansbury

Research Fellow, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



Louise studied Medicine and spent several years working as a clinical microbiologist in hospitals around the UK. During this time she also worked on various laboratory-based microbiological projects, ranging from virus survival in glycerol-preserved cadaveric skin to analysis of the flagellin proteins of Helicobacter pylori. From 2007-8, Louise was the UK study co-ordinator for a pan-European project investigating the impact of antibiotic-resistant S.aureus and E.coli bloodstream infections.

In December 2014 Louise completed her PhD on the evidence-based management of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, having spent six years at the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology working on an NIHR-funded programme of work, 'Setting Priorities and Reducing Uncertainties in People with Skin Disease'.

Louise joined the Health Protection and Influenza Research Group as a Research Fellow in October 2014, where she is currently undertaking a systematic review of the effectiveness of vaccination against pandemic influenza A(H1N1)pdm09.
