Thompsons Solicitors’ Aberdeen Partner Chris Gordon has welcomed news that scientists at Aberdeen University have been awarded £1.5m for research into deadly bacteria like E.coli, salmonella and Legionella which cause Legionnaires disease.

Mr Gordon who is based at Thompsons offices in King Street, Aberdeen said: “It is really good to see our universities using their skills and expertise to tackle such serious health threats.”

The research team at Aberdeen will share the funding from the Welcome Trust with their counterparts at St Andrews and Oxford.

The hope is that the research programme will lead to the development of new anti-microbial drugs.

Professor Ian Booth from Aberdeen’s Institute of Medical Sciences said: “We  aim to create potential new drugs to tackle a range of bacteria which have become more resistant to antibiotics”.

Thompsons Solicitors represent the families of the 18 victims at the public inquiry into Scotland’s worst outbreak of C.Diff at Vale of Leven Hospital.
