Dr Jacqueline Amy Hannam

BSc(Hons), PhD

Research | Current

Current areas of investigation include the pharmacokinetics of some commonly used antibiotics, anaesthestics and analgesics. In addition, I am undertaking research to better understand the biomarker procalcitonin and its use in context of diagnosing and treating bacterial infections.
