Ryan has worked as a clinical pharmacist specialising in antimicrobials, OPAT, and acute medicine in the NHS. During the first peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ryan also worked as a clinical pharmacist within intensive care, providing specialist infection advice, delivering patient facing care and prescribing antimicrobial therapy alongside intensive care medicine. As an antimicrobial specialist he led several antimicrobial stewardship initiatives, quality improvement projects, and supported the wider stewardship agenda across Leicestershire. As well driving antimicrobial stewardship within the NHS, Ryan develops regional and national outreach initiatives that aim to improve the public’s understanding of antimicrobial resistance and stewardship.In 2017 he completed a PhD from Liverpool John Moores University’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences for a thesis entitled “The development and evaluation of antibacterial polymer-phyllosilicate composite systems for the treatment of infected wounds.” His research interests continue to focus on the use of antimicrobial agents from a pharmaceutical perspective but also within clinical practice and the wider population.
