Enas Newire, Ph.D.

University of Liverpool

Enas Newire is a molecular microbiologist (early-career researcher) with extensive antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and bacterial whole genome sequence (WGS) analysis experience.

Newire received her B.Sc. in Biology from the American University in Cairo (AUC), M.Sc. in Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Ph.D. in Microbial Diseases from University College London (UCL) in 2018. After her Ph.D., Newire worked as a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of Lincoln.

Newire has also occupied research and academic positions since 2004 at the United States Naval Medical Research Unit-3 (US. NAMRU-3), AUC and UCL. She handled several molecular and microbiological typing projects and collaborated with lower and middle-income countries (LMIC).

Her research activities focus on the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance amongst bacteria, particularly bacterial evolutionary studies, bacterial plasmid transfer and fitness studies, natural bacterial immune systems (CRISPRs) analysis and bioinformatic analysis of bacterial genome sequences.
