Title: “Investigating the spread and treatment of hospital pathogens”
Abstract: Bacterial disease is a cycle of colonization, infection and spread. Using the hospital-associated pathogen A. baumannii as a model system we investigate its ability to colonize and persist on animate and inanimate surfaces, as well as new approaches to control the disease that it and other hospital associated pathogens cause.
