Our Research

Our research themes and multidisciplinary approach

Antimicrobial Resistance

Klebsiella pneumoniae (green) interacting with murine macrophages
This research theme explores the molecular mechanisms that underpin antimicrobial resistance in facilitating microbial survival under drug and immune challenge.

Diagnostics Research

This research theme explores novel molecular detection modalities, biomarkers and assay integration strategies.

Global Health

This research theme explores the challenges of infectious diseases and the profound effects that the collapse of geographical space and increasing population growth have had on their disease epidemiology.

Host-Pathogen Interactions

This research theme investigates host-pathogen interactions that are vital to our understanding of host biology, infectious diseases and effective therapies.

Systems Biology/Big Data

This research theme explores how Systems-type and Big Data-based approaches can be used to advance our understanding of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases.
