Sally Cutler is professor in medical microbiology at the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience.

Research expertise has evolved from arthropod-borne borrelial infections to encompass a wide array of bacterial zoonoses including Rickettsia, Coxiella, Leptospira and Bartonella. This work has gone from field-based studies through to molecular profiling and from developing countries to those in more affluent nations. This has helped to develop Professor Cutler's international reputation in the field.

She is extensively involved with dissemination of research and serves in several editorial and advisory roles. This wealth of experience is further disseminated to students through teaching activities.
