Miss Catrin Williams 

I obtained my BSc (Hons.) degree from Cardiff University in 2008, having conducted research for my final year project in Prof. David Lloyd’s where my interest in the antimicrobial action of garlic first came about. During the summer of 2008 I worked for a short period for my now CASE partner Neem Biotech Ltd. investigating the antibacterial effect of garlic against Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Campylobacter jejuni. I then commenced on an around the world trip for 6 months, visiting South America, Australia and Asia. Upon my return I began a GO-Wales work placement at the Port Talbot-based Obsidian Research Ltd where I conducted two projects on molecular identification and intestinal adherence of probiotic bacteria.

I began my PhD in October 2009, based in the Schools of Biosciences and Chemistry at Cardiff University researching the antimicrobial activity of garlic.
