Hospital and Healthcare Pathogens
Hospital and healthcare pathogens are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with the prevention and treatment of these organisms being a global challenge.
Our research encompasses projects that are focussed on a number of signature hospital and healthcare pathogens.
- Using whole genome sequencing to identify transmission linkages among carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates within the Australian Capital Territory
- Characterisation of MLST non-typeable Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus faecium
- A genomic epidemiological investigation of a multi-resistant Staphylococcus capitis clone associated with neonatal sepsis
