Dr Nick Feasey
Nick is a medical microbiologist and infectious disease physician, and was based at the Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Trust Laboratory. His undergraduate training was at the Royal Free and he trained in infection medicine at St George’s Hospital in London. Nick's research interests include invasive Salmonella, the evolution of antimicrobial resistance and Cryptococcal meningitis and he was awarded a Research Training Fellowship by the Wellcome Trust in June 2010.
Nick's research in Malawi focused on causes of and outcomes from bloodstream infection (BSI), especially invasive Salmonella disease. The work demonstrated that a fall in BSI of all causes following the roll-out of antiretroviral therapy, especially recurrent Salmonella BSI. Investigation of the genomic epidemiology of Salmonella Enteritidis at WTSI revealed the existence of a novel, African clone of Enteritidis circulating in Africa.
