Dr Donna Bryan joined the NIBSC in 1998. Her research interests are varied having worked on several projects over the years, both in academia and at the NIBSC. Currently, Donna works in the Enterics Group where she manages the research and standardisation projects for the development of reference materials for health care associated infection caused by Clostridioides difficile. Her PhD was obtained in 1998 from Barts and the London school of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London.
