Project

Fighting the spread of antibiotic resistance

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Background

Antibiotics have been used for decades to save lives, but bacteria have slowly started to become more resistant. This is a major health threat that needs to be counteracted. In this project, you will investigate how bacteria can use horizontal gene transfer as a mechanism to spread antibiotic resistance to other microorganisms. You will also explore novel ways to intervene in this process and fight the spread of antibiotic resistance.

Aim

You will use state of the art techniques to investigate the composition of microbial communities, detect anticiotic resistance, and monitor the fate of antibiotic resistance genes under the microscope.

What will you learn

This project gives you a great opportunity to learn more about the growing concern of antibiotic resistance. Furthermore you will gain a lot of laboratory experience and learn to set-up and operate your own advanced microbial experiments.
