Colman earned his BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science at University College Dublin in Ireland in 2015. Having a desire to advance his career in microbiology he undertook an MRes at the University of Nottingham studying ancient antimicrobials and their efficacy. He was awarded the degree of MRes in 2016 for this work. Shortly after Colman began his current role at the University of Nottingham as a PhD student funded by the BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnerships program. Colman's PhD project is using next-generation sequencing technologies to understand the tramission patterns of Mycobacterium bovis in cattle and badgers in England. He works under the supervision of Prof. Richard Emes and Prof. Malcolm Bennett
Clinical Relevance Facilitator for all Year 1 Clinical Relevance modules in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science.
Using whole genome sequencing to understand transmission patterns of Mycobacterium bovis in England among badgers and cattle.
"Ancientbiotics": During my M.Res I worked on the refinement and isolation of active components in a powerful anti-staphylococcal recreated from a recipe found in a medieval medical text. One of the core skills I used during this time was the utilisation of artificial wound models in my research.
Use of nanopore sequencing technologies for disease surveillance and reporting.
