Beschreibung:

Dr. Steven Percival qualified from the University of Leeds with a PhD in microbiology. He also holds MSc in Public Health and Medical Microbiology. After five years lecturing in Higher education Steven returned back to the bench to undertake more research into biofilms and bacterial pathogenicity at the Centres for Disease Control in Atlanta, US and Leeds Teaching Hospitals, UK. Dr. Williams currently leads the Oral Microbiology Group based at the School of Dentistry, at Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK. Since Dr. Williams' first degree (Cardiff University), he has worked in the pharmaceutical industry, food microbiology and as an academic researcher. Having completed a PhD at the School of Dentistry in Cardiff on the immunopathogenesis of oral candidosis, Dr. Williams' research has continued within Cardiff University and primarily focuses within the field of Clinical Microbiology with an emphasis on studies involving microbial biofilms. Dr. Williams' research encompasses investigating biofilm susceptibility to antimicrobial agents, expression of virulence factors such as hydrolytic enzyme production, adhesion, and microbial modulation of innate immune responses. Of particular interest has been research into the development of biomaterials (e.g. silicone rubber, acrylic, titanium) to inhibit biofilm formation on medical devices. Dr. Williams is a previous recipient of the Senior Colgate Award (British Society for Oral and Dental Research) and the International Hatton Award (The International Association for Dental Research).
This comprehensive text describes the diseases associated with water, their causative agents and the ways in which they gain access to water systems. It also details the methods for detecting and identifying waterborne microorganisms, the ways in which they are removed from water, and the risks they present to water users. This handbook will serve as an indispensable reference for public health microbiologists, water utility scientists, research water pollution microbiologists, environmental health officers, consultants in communicable disease control and microbial water pollution students.
