Dr Cressida Bowyer
Senior Research Fellow
I am a Senior Research Fellow in Enterprise and Innovation in the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries. A scientist by training, having previously worked in the music business, I work across disciplines and apply creative methodologies to the development of health and well-being innovations.
I joined Professor Joan Farrer's Enterprise and Innovation team at the beginning of 2016. Prior to that I obtained a degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Brighton, followed by a PhD investigating hypoxia as a target for drug combination therapy of liver cancer. I then worked as a Research Fellow at UoB on a number of research projects, including the development of biomaterials and wound dressings and investigating alternative treatments for antibiotic resistant bacteria.
I am currently working on a number of funded international research projects and in the development of new bids focussed on the University research theme health and well-being.
