As I have needed to change my culture site topic, I’ve decided on Dr. Sharon Peacock. from the University of Cambridge. She is now a Professor of Clinical Biology, and partnered with the Sanger Institute. As if that is not enough, she also keeps afloat a research program in Thailand that is primarily focused on molecular epidemiology.
She graduated from Southampton University in 1988 with her degree in medicine, and in addition she studied in London, Brighton and Oxford for four years to achieve her MRCP. She then was trained in clinical microbiology in Oxford. She remained there as a senior lecturer from 1998-2002. She then spent the next seven years in Thailand accepting awards and furthering her research at her program.
Needless to say, this woman has accomplished a lot, and I truly don’t think she is finished.
