Microbes can cause all sorts of problems in our environment; Assoc Prof Simon Swift wants to stop them. In Simon's laboratory, his research team wants to understand how biocides work at the molecular level, so they can be improved. Simon's team also tests how biocides work in model systems that mimic the real world so they can be confident the antimicrobial solutions they develop in the laboratory will be fit for purpose.
