Volunteer: Carolin Kobras

Carolin obtained her BSc and MSc Biology degrees at Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, before she completed her PhD studies in the Department of Biology & Biochemistry at the University of Bath. Over the course of her education, Carolin developed a keen interest in how antibiotics work and how bacteria become resistant against them. Currently, Carolin is a postdoctoral researcher at the Florey Institute for Host-Pathogen Interactions at the University of Sheffield. Her research here focusses on understanding mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance in the Gram-positive human pathogen Streptococcus pneumoniae.
