Research Fellow in Optical Molecular Imaging
Dr Beth Mills was awarded her PhD in Molecular Microbiology from the University of Nottingham in 2015. She subsequently joined the University of Edinburgh where she is the biology lead on the validation of optical SmartProbes and imaging devices for clinical translation into i) the ICU for patients with suspected ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP) and ii) at the point-of-care in resource limited settings for infection detection and treatment by photodynamic therapy, with a particular focus on microbial keratitis.
In 2016 Beth was awarded the Women in Molecular Imaging Network Scholar Award at the World Molecular Imaging Congress. Beth recently completed an MSc in Global Health Policy at the University of Edinburgh, and is building networks of academics and clinicians across India to further her research aspirations to work collaboratively to develop practical solutions to infection and AMR diagnosis and treatment.
