Understanding Antibiotic Resistance In Golden Staph

Grant number: 628652 | Funding period: 2010 - 2012

Completed

Abstract

The common bacteria Staphylococcus aureus causes many infections in humans, and is becoming more resistant to antibiotic treatments, especially in hospitals. This project will determine how this bacteria is developing resistance to some of our last available antibiotics. This will provide an important basis for detecting and preventing this antibiotic resistance problem in future.
