Personal profile

Biography

Sarah Revitt-Mills is an ECR working at the Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University. She completed her PhD in Molecular Microbiology at Monash University in 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Julian Rood, Dr. Vicki Adams and Prof. Dena Lyras. Her studies focused on the conjugative plasmids of the pathogen Clostridum perfringens. Her work identified and characterised components of plasmid transfer, regulation and maintenance systems. Her previous post-doctoral work, in Dr. Andrew Robinson’s lab at the Univesity of Wollongong, NSW, used advanced single-molecule imaging techniques and experimental evolution approaches to establish how bacterial DNA repair can play a role in the development and spread of antibiotic resistance. Currently, Sarah is in Prof. Dena Lyras' lab at Monash University, examining mechanisms of anitmicrobial resistance and plasmid maintenance in the Clostridia.
