Daniel Buhl

Postgraduate student: Supervisor Dr Mark Holmes


Daniel is a PhD student from the Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research and he is currently working with Dr Mark Holmes (Cambridge) and Professor Zoltan Takats (Imperial). For his PhD project he is investigating new approaches for the rapid detection of antimicrobial resistances directly from clinical samples.


Before starting in Cambridge, Daniel studied for a BSc and MSc in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Heidelberg in Germany, where he maintained interests in topics such as bioinformatics, biophysical chemistry and drug research. Though, his research focused on microbiology and immunology in the context of infectious diseases and host-pathogen interactions. During internships at Cardiff University and Boston University (US), he also gained knowledge of infections with B. anthracis and Shiga-toxin producing E. coli. Furthermore, he worked on quorum sensing in B. subtilis as a research assistant at the BioQuant in Heidelberg. Daniel also held a part-time position as an assistant for the National Center for Tumor Diseases, Heidelberg.
