About Joseph Brown

I gained a BSc (Hons) in Forensic Science from the University of Lincoln in 2012, and I am currently working on a MPhil/PhD in Medical Sciences. I am looking at the prevalence of Clostridium perfringens within a poultry environment, and developing a biocidal product to control the levels of harmful Clostridia.
