Dr Liam Reynolds
Post Doctoral Researcher
University College Dublin

Dr Liam Reynolds is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science, University College Dublin and is also a member of the Society of General Microbiology (SGM) and the Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM).

Dr Reynolds completed his PhD on antimicrobial resistance gene discovery, at the Eastman Dental Institute, University College London. His PhD was partly funded by the Animal and Plant Health Agency and focused on the identification of novel antimicrobial resistance genes from the uncultivable bacteria of human saliva and calf faeces using a functional metagenomic approach. He was also involved in a number of voluntary outreach projects during his PhD and co-created the Swab and Send project which aimed to inform the public about antibiotic resistance by getting them involved in the hunt for novel antibiotics.

Dr Reynolds contributed to the INTERREG-IVA ‘Smart Coasts = Sustainable Communities’ project as a summer student and is now a postdoctoral researcher on the Acclimatize project in which he will quantify and determine the source of faecal contamination in Dublin bay by assessing faecal indicator bacteria.


This project has been part funded by the ERDF though the Ireland Wales Programme 2014 -2020.
