  • Plasma-based therapies for bone infection

    Orthopaedic infection is life-threatening and current treatments are only sparingly successful. Despite aggressive peri-operative antibiotic treatments, 1.5% of knee revisions, 0.7 to 11.9%, of spinal infections (depending on the complexity of the procedure) and up to 27% of open fractures become infected. Moreover, the complexity of...

  • Prediction of radiation toxicity in prostate cancer patients using Raman spectroscopy

    There are no tests currently available to predict an individual patient's response to radiotherapy. Some patients experience severe long term side effects months and even years after their treatment has finished and these effects can be permanent. For example, some prostate cancer patients develop life-changing bowel and urinary...

  • Intensive Care Airway and Lung Microbiome Network ICALM Network

    Hospital acquired pneumonia (HAP) is the most frequent infection acquired in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). ICU-related respiratory infections arise as a consequence of the processes of ICU care. Mechanical ventilation (MV) is potentially lifesaving, but also carries microorganisms into the lower airways, changing the native flora, and...

  • 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...
