Dr. Oliver Farr BSc (Hons), Msci


Oli graduated from the University of Birmingham with an MSci degree in Biochemistry in 2018. For his Master's project, Oli investigated the roles of two proteins involved in mupirocin synthesis. This contributed to an overarching project to reengineer the mupirocin synthesis pathway allowing the generation of novel mupirocin derivatives which could be screened for therapeutic improvements to combat antibiotic resistance. He went on to work in the microbiology quality control lab for a GSK manufacturing site until joining Micropathology in July 2022.
