Professor Juergen Haas, Head of DIPM, welcomed the group and gave a presentation focusing on the Division’s teaching and research activities. Dr Juan Carlos Jimenez Castellanos, Postdoctoral Research Fellow from the Division's Schneiders Lab, gave a lively introduction on some of the AMR research which they are undertaking. Sarah Stedman, PhD student from the Bachmann Lab, gave an introduction on current AMR research being carried out in her lab.

Over coffee and scones, the student visitors had a lively discussion with DIPM staff and students about the two posters, produced by PhD student Aishwarya Saxena and Charlie Metcalf from their research projects.

The group were then given a tour around the DIPM labs and microbiology labs at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

The student visitors enjoyed their visit to the DIPM. It helped them to understand some current research topics which are being undertaken in the area of Infectious Diseases at the University of Edinburgh. They also value the experience of seeing how research and clinical labs are set up in the UK.
