This Wellcome Trust funded project explores responses to drug resistant infections and health inequalities. We have four major areas of research. If you are interested in helping us, please click on the most appropriate to get more information.

- Science, policy and activism in the UK and US
Our team are based at the University of Sussex. We are carrying out research in both the UK and US to explore the importance of political factors in explaining difference responses from clinicians, patient groups, activists, scientists and policy makers. We are concerned with marginalisation and stigma 'at the intersections' of immigration, precarious work or housing, ethnicity and sexual and gender minorities. Though our main focus is resistant bacterial infections, we are also necessarily thinking about the COVID-19 virus and its effects in highlighting racism and sexism in different sectors and putting pressure on health systems.
