Janet Bradbury

Janet Bradbury joined the University of Liverpool in 1964 and her doctorate focussed on avian mycoplasmas. She lectured on microbiology to numerous veterinary students, but her favourite subject was always mycoplasmas. Her research explored epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis and control of avian mycoplasmas and was involved in describing several new species. During her working career she published approximately 100 peer-reviewed articles and gave more than 100 invited talks at conferences. She was an editor of the book Poultry Diseases (6th edn) and contributed to mycoplasma chapters in Diseases of Poultry, Topley and Wilson’s Microbiology & Microbial Infections, Bergey’s Manual of Systematic Bacteriology, the OIE Manual of Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals and several mycoplasma textbooks.

Janet became Chair of the International Research Programme for Comparative Mycoplasmology after serving as leader of its Avian Working Team and was also Chair of the mycoplasma taxonomy section of the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes. She was Secretary-General of the International Organisation for Mycoplasmology (IOM) and is proud to have introduced the current Secretary-General to the IOM after a chance meeting at a birthday party!

She was promoted to Professor in 2003 and ‘officially’ retired in 2009, but remains an Emeritus Professor. Also in 2009 she became Editor-in-Chief of the journal Avian Pathology, a job that ended any ideas of a peaceful retirement.

Since her retirement Janet has been a co-author on 12 papers and 21 presentations at meetings, thanks to valued collaborations with colleagues in other institutes, and she provides advice when needed to the mycoplasma diagnostic service at the University. She is an honorary life member of the World Veterinary Poultry Association, the British Veterinary Poultry Association and the IOM. She was awarded the Gordon Memorial Trust Medal, 2004, ‘in recognition of distinguished contributions to poultry science’ and the Keith Gooderham Waterfowl Lecture Award, 2012.
