Vaccines and infectious disease

With one of the largest groupings of microbiologists in the world, we are at the vanguard of innovative research into combatting antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance. We approach this in three ways: diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Our research is diverse, encompassing the fundamental science of model organisms to the biochemical and biophysical analysis of microbial components, and transnational research on key pathogens of medical and veterinary importance.

A primary focus of our research is combatting the global threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). By taking a multi-disciplinary approach involving genomics, bacterial genetics, molecular microbiology, structural biology and mathematical modelling, our aim is to tackle significant global health-care challenges such as tuberculosis, pneumonia, fungal pathogens, gastrointestinal infection, blood stream infections, and health-care associated infections.
