Antimicrobial Resistance

This research theme explores the molecular mechanisms that underpin antimicrobial resistance in facilitating microbial survival under drug and immune challenge.

Antimicrobial Resistance is one of the greatest healthcare challenges of our time. Accordingly, our research encompasses the spectrum of fundamental pathogen biology, accelerating diagnostic development and implementing novel therapies in the treatment of infectious diseases.
