We are delighted to welcome Evangelos Mourkas, as a starting PhD student in our lab! Evangelos, who got his DVM from Greece, is coming to us from Uppsala University (Sweden). His research here will focus on Campylobacter transmission ecology.

#TeamEvangelos, the genesis.
After more than 4 productive and fruitful years at Swansea University Medical School, our laboratory has now relocated to the University of Bath, at the Department of Biology & Biotechnology, and will be part of the future Milner Centre for Evolution in the near future! Along with Sam Sheppard, Daniel Falush, Guillaume Méric and Ben Pascoe have also joined the lab from Swansea.
Our website has been updated, and as always, you can follow our updates on this page, as well as on our Twitter feed (@sheppard_lab).
Our research on Campylobacter in seals story has also been recently mentioned in The Sunday Times, the South Wales Evening Post, the International Business Times.
Also, Happy New Year!
