Sarah Bailey

Assistant Programme Manager

Sarah is Assistant Programme Manager for the Longitude Prize, a £10 million prize fund to help solve the global problem of antibiotic resistance.

Before joining Nesta, Sarah was a researcher at University College London working on a major new birth cohort study, and before that worked at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists writing systematic reviews to inform UK maternal and child health clinical guidelines. Before that she spent far too long studying and trying to figure out what to do with her life.

Sarah has a First in Anatomy and Physiology (BSc) from the University of Leeds, an MSc in Immunology of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a Distinction in Epidemiology (MPhil) from the University of Cambridge.

Outside work Sarah is a keen runner. She also enjoys cycling, hiking and skiing, all of which are the perfect excuse for cooking (and eating) as much as possible. When not doing sport she can be found watching it; or at a gig somewhere; or curled up thinking about reading a book (probably non-fiction, and probably about science).
