  • Evidence Synthesis Ireland

    Health care decisions should be based on the combination of the full amount of information that is available rather than relying on the convenient selection of one or more individual pieces of information, or studies. Evidence synthesis methods seek to establish the overall balance of information on a given topic, and are based on...

  • Intervention of antimicrobial resistance transfer into the food chain (INART)

    Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR)

    Soil and water have been identified as reservoirs of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the food chain as the most likely mode of AMR transfer into human and animal pathogens. Manure is reused as soil fertiliser in which food plants grow and is a source of AMR....

  • Preventing transmission of MRSA from livestock to humans through competitive exclusion (EXCLUDE MRSA)

    Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR)

    Pig farms act as reservoir of Livestock-Associated Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (LA-MRSA). Through occupational exposure to farm dust and contact with pigs, farm workers are at risk for acquiring LA-MRSA. Although health care institutions can cope...

  • Ancient genomics and the Atlantic burden

    WT Scheme: Investigator Award in Science.

    Massive human genome resequencing projects are in train to further the understanding of the genetic contributions to disease. However these offer a limited view of genome genealogies, variant history and past selection, all of which are instrument to the models underpinning genomic...

  • Staphylococcus aureus induced immunosuppressive memory: Consequences for bug and for host

    WT Scheme: Investigator Award in Science.

    Antimicrobial resistance by Staphylococcus aureus is a global epidemic. New approaches based on induction of immune responses that control/prevent S. aureus infection, are required. This necessitates a thorough understanding of the unique relationship cultivated by S. aureus with the...
