Antimicrobial Action, Resistance and Epidemiology

Description
Members of this group work on a range of projects investigating how bacteria become resistant to antibiotics, how antibiotic resistance genes relate to the biology of pathogenic bacteria and how resistance genes are mobilised. Current research programmes focus on enteric pathogens including Escherichia coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter, respiratory pathogens including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Mycobacterium tuberculosis and nosocomial pathogens including Acinetobacter and Staphylococcus aureus. Specific interests relate to understanding the evolution of antibiotic resistance and transmission routes and dynamics of resistance as well as the study of membrane proteins in terms of resistance and the development of novel therapeutics. Research in this area is supported by extensive funding from research councils, charities, government agencies and other sources.
