Core Activities

Clinical and antibiotic stewardship cores – understanding the clinical aspects of antibiotic resistance and launching programs on surveillance, antibiotic stewardship, and interventional studies

Basic science – elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance and identification of potentially novel targets for drug discovery

Genomics – performing and analyzing bacterial genome sequencing to develop rapid diagnostic tools, evaluate antimicrobial resistance profiles, and study the molecular epidemiology of resistant pathogens

Pharmacology and animal models– development of animal models to study therapeutics and pharmacological aspects of antibiotics

Training and education – supporting the development of young investigators interested in antimicrobial resistance and launching educational training programs for clinicians and scientists at the graduate, postgraduate, and assistant professor level

Clinical trials – provide the ideal location and expertise to lead and conduct robust, large-scale clinical trials
