Lori A. S. Snyder is an Associate Professor at Kingston University. Her research focuses on two main areas: combating antibiotic resistant infections and bacterial genetics and genomics. Her team has developed novel antimicrobials to stop infant blindness from multi-drug resistant bacterial infections. They also use bacterial genome sequence data to uncover information about pathogens, informing laboratory investigations. Her genomics research began during her PhD at Emory University and continued through her post-doctoral work at the University of Oxford and the University of Birmingham. In 2013, Dr. Snyder was awarded the W H Pierce Prize from the Society for Applied Microbiology in recognition of her substantial contributions to the science of applied microbiology due to her work in genomics. In April 2020, Dr. Snyder published the Bacterial Genetics and Genomics textbook with Taylor & Francis.
