Areas of research
AMR research within the Wellcome Trust Brighton and Sussex Centre for Global Health Research is rapidly expanding, investigating different issues relating to AMR, but focusing primarily on bacterial infections.
Research includes epidemiology of both Gram-negative and Gram-positive infections, genetic mechanisms of resistance, evolution and transmission in the hospital setting, as well as the community, and antimicrobial stewardship.
An interdisciplinary project, run by Dr Leena Al-Hassan, aims to investigate the epidemiology of Gram-negative infections and characterise the main mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in different African countries, as well as looking at the role of mobile genetic elements in the transmission of resistance globally.
