Antibiotic resistance

We have been studying antibiotic resistance in Campylobacter jejuni, Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC), Salmonella sp., and group B Streptococcus. We are also characterizing resistance mechanisms and the distribution of resistance genes in different environments.

                       

  • We demonstrated that non-O157 STEC strains were more likely to be resistant than O157 STEC, and that patients with resistant infections were more likely to be hospitalized (See: Mukherjee et al. Emerg Infect Dis 2017).
