Principal Lecturer in Microbiology
Dr Manning is a Principal Lecturer at Nottingham Trent University and Subject Leader of the Microbiology section within the School of Science and Technology, contributing to teaching and module leadership at Foundation, Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels. Dr Manning is the Bioscience Outreach, Short Course and International Collaborations Coordinator and is a member of the School Academic and Standards and Quality Committee.
Dr Manning is a member of the Pathogen Research Group and the Biomedical, Life and Health Science Research Centre and her research interests include Food-borne pathogens, in particular Campylobacter jejuni and C.coli, including aspects of bacterial pathogenesis, molecular typing, genomics and evolution.
Current research is focused on investigating the molecular basis of host cell invasion and evolution of pathogenesis in C. jejuni as well as the contribution to human disease of C. coli.
Previous PhD projects supervised have included using transposon mutagenesis, comparative genomic hybridisation, subtractive hybridisation and next generation sequencing to identify genes associated with host cell invasion and to investigate host adaptation within C. jejuni and C. coli. Further information may be obtained from the NTU Graduate School.
