Using next generation sequencing to better understand antibiotic resistant infections

Over-prescription and inappropriate antibiotic use worldwide has led to the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacterial pathogens that are proving difficult, and now in some cases, impossible to treat. Current methods for detecting antibiotic-resistant infections present a
significant barrier to timely and accurate diagnosis, and are often expensive and laborious.

Goals of this PhD are to improve the cost, effort and turnaround time for detecting antibiotic resistant infections in Queensland hospitals, with a focus on high-risk individuals with chronic lung disease.
