Dr Shan Goh


Dr Shan Goh is a Senior Lecturer in Microbiology. She completed her BSc(Hons.) in Microbiology and Pathology at the University of Western Australia, where she continued postgraduate studies on bacteriophages of Clostridium difficile obtaining her PhD in 2004. Dr Goh was a postdoctoral researcher at the National University of Singapore, studying C. difficile phages, from 2004-2006. She then joined the Bioprocessing Technology Institute, Singapore as a Research Scientist constructing expression plasmids for metabolic engineering. 

In 2006, she was awarded a visiting scientist scholarship by the Swedish Institute for postdoctoral training at Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Here Dr Goh investigated growth essential gene stringency and thereafter joined a team searching for novel human viruses using next generation sequencing. Dr Goh moved to the Royal Veterinary College in 2009, working as a postdoctoral scientist formulating novel molecular therapeutics targeting pathogens infecting humans and animals. 

In 2017, Dr Goh joined the University of Hertfordshire and plans to continue her research on antimicrobial strategies, phage-mediated gene transfer, and genetic tool development in microbes important in human and animal health.
