Antimicrobial Resistance

Bacterial infections are a challenge to human and animal health, generally treated with antimicrobial therapies. However, the increase in antimicrobial resistance poses one of the major risks to health care worldwide. At IRAS, we collaborate in One Health research consortia aiming to increase the understanding of the risk factors and spread of mobile genetic elements that carry antimicrobial resistance genes by collecting and analyzing relevant samples of humans, the environment and animals.
