Carl Robinson, PhD profile page


Carl attained a BSc (microbiology, 1992) and PhD (molecular microbiology of bacterial spore germination, 1996) from the University of Sheffield. He then did a three-year post-doctoral position at the University of Portsmouth investigating eukaryotic transcription factors involved in blood development. In 2000, he moved to the Animal Health Trust in Newmarket, utilizing his molecular biology expertise, to identify diagnostic and vaccine targets and their translation into commercial products. The focus was primarily veterinary streptococcal pathogens, which led to the development of both commercial diagnostic tests and a licensed vaccine. Currently, Carl is a senior research associate at the University of Cambridge School of Veterinary Medicine, utilizing massively parallel sequencing of bacterial pathogens to identify potential vaccine targets to combat respiratory disease in horses.
