Director of HPRU

Alison Holmes

The principal areas of Professor Holmes' research are in hospital epidemiology and infection prevention and control, including the field of antibiotic stewardship to address the threat of antimicrobial resistance. Her work addresses infection management, patient safety and public health within acute healthcare and provides a clear example of applied research in healthcare delivery. In particular, Professor Holmes has demonstrated how patient-focused research can have a powerful and rapid impact on the health of the patients concerned, with wider implications for the NHS as a whole.

A further element of her work also involves investigating models of health care and methods of improving systems to ensure best practice and a reduction in healthcare associated infection.
