'Multi-modality imaging of C. rodentium infection in vivo'
Dr Collins holds a degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics and a PhD in Food and Nutritional Sciences from the University of Reading. He is an expert in the Multimodality imaging of bacterial infections and recently created the first ever 4D movie of a bacterial infection, which featured on the BBC website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-18631157 ).
James is an early career scientist and works at Imperial College London, in the lab of Prof. Gad Frankel as a senior research associate and runs the in vivo imaging facility, which includes an IVIS Spectrum CT. His current research interests include the use of probiotics to control bacterial infections and Multimodality imaging of infectious disease. Currently, James collaborates with Danone Research to evaluate their new product range and Perkin Elmer to develop tools to image both bacterial and host responses during an infection.
