Dr Karen Stanley BSc PhD FHEA

I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2003 after undertaking various postdoctoral projects in Aberdeen, Bristol, Mexico and Ghana. I am the professional lead for biomedical sciences and pharmacology and contribute to other college teaching. I am also the departmental lead for assessment.

I currently teach microbiology across our programmes and lead postgraduate modules in Infection and Immunity, Professional Development, Biomedical Sciences research project module and a second year undergraduate module Applied Ecology and Environmental Biosciences.
In collaboration with Professor Tom Smith my research focuses on the role of the hospital environment as a reservoir of organisms that cause hospital acquired infections. I am a member of the Society for Applied Microbiology, the American Society for Microbiology and the Microbiology Society.
