- Antimicrobials, antimicrobial resistance and evolution
- Klebsiella pneumoniae (Kp) is a key player in the global spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Our studies involve comparative molecular epidemiological studies (whole genome sequencing and metagenomics), pheno- and genotypic associations in pathogenicity and antimicrobial susceptibility (GWAS and machine learning), as well as preclinical effectstudies of bacteriophages in the containment of carriage of and infections caused by multidrug resistant Kp. Kp-studies are funded by the Trond Mohn Foundation ( https://mohnfoundation.no/amr-prosjekter/) and partner institutions.
