Biography
Gareth is a medical microbiologist working in the multidisciplinary Micro-Devices, Regenerative and Interventional Pharmaceutics (uDRIP) research team established by Dr Dario Carguo, which operates within the department of pharmaceutics at the UCL School of Pharmacy. Gareth completed his BSc (Hons) in Human Biology in 2012 and attained an MSc with Distinction in Biomedical Science specialising in Medical Microbiology in 2017. Gareth completed his interdisciplinary PhD at the University of Southampton in Ultrasound-Mediated Therapies for the Treatment of Biofilms in Chronic Wound Infections in 2020, which involved key collaborative partners from Public Health England and the National Biofilms Innovation Centre. The aim of this research was to develop an ultrasound-responsive carrier for nitric oxide targeted to biofilms, which can induce both biological dispersal and mechanical elimination of biofilms and significantly enhance local drug uptake. In recognition of his research, he was awarded the 2020-2021 EPSRC Doctoral Prize Research Fellowship to continue developments in this area.
Research Summary
Gareth is currently a postdoctoral researcher on the UKRI funded "Beyond Antibiotics" programme, which brings together researchers from Physical and Life Sciences at the Universities of Oxford, Ulster and UCL. The cross-disciplinary project aims to develop new technology to improve both the diagnosis and treatment of bacterial infections, which substantially builds on his earlier work in biofilm control strategies and novel drug delivery methods for biofilms in chronic diseases.
