Understanding how staphylococci respond to antibiotics
Grant number: 1026656 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015
Golden Staph is a major problem in Australian hospitals. This project will use cutting edge technology to investigate how Golden Staph responds to and resists antibiotics used to treat human infections, leading to new strategies for the prevention and treatment of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
