About Anne Farewell

Antibiotic resistance is quickly becoming a global crisis with bacterial resistance spreading worldwide. The research in my group previously focused on bacterial gene regulation in general but I have now decided to focus my efforts on the problem of antibiotic resistance. Specifically, we are studying which genes influence the spread of antibiotic resistance genes through conjugation (horizontal gene transfer) with the aim of inhibiting this process. We have teamed up with others at GU to utilize new tools to study this process and are part of the Centre for Antibiotic Resistance (CARe) at GU.

I was named Excellent Teacher at GU in 2015 for my commitment to and activities in education, educational research and resource design. I’m particularly interested in active learning and course design that integrates our work as researchers with our undergraduate education.

I am course leader for four courses as well as lecturer in others:

  • BIO277 Molecular Microbiology
  • BIO510 Prokaryotic Molecular Microbiology
  • HPE102 Higher Education Teaching in Natural Sciences
  • BIO001 The problem of antibiotic resistance


You can learn more about the problem of antibiotic resistance in an online course I have made available at www.antibiotic-resistance.org

I also maintain a Microbiology news Twitter and Facebook account:
