UNDERSTANDING AND COMBATING BACTERIAL INFECTIONS

Grant number: 1023526 | Funding period: 2014 - 2015

Abstract

This project will focus on two important bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus (Golden Staph), and Enterococcus faecium, both causes of serious infections in hospital and community patients in Australia. Using new technologies, including whole genome sequencing, this project will lead to significant advances in understanding how these bacteria evolve, spread and cause disease. This will lead to new strategies for prevention and management of infections caused by these important bacteria.
