STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

  • Innovation and development of translational research in microbiology with an emphasis on the anthropogenic influences on emergencies and the dissemination of pathogen and/or antimicrobial resistance microorganisms, and the potential strategies for its control.
  • Consolidation of molecular microbiology techniques, bioinformatics platforms, and mathematical and computational modelization for the study of changes in microbial biology with an impact on human health considered in multiple hierarchical levels (from genes to clones and to patients)
  • Consolidate an innovative and useful microbiology for hospital-based public health, with applications in hospital infection, but also in community infections and in environmental microbial ecosystems.
  • Training for Molecular Microbiology and Public Health Microbiology researchers

RESEARCH LINES

  • Evolutionary microbiology, eco-microbiology and modelization of microbial processes with significance in global health (PI: Dr. F. Baquero)
  • Epidemiology of antibiotic resistance and clinical trials of diagnostic tests (PI: Dr. R. Cantón, Co-PI: Dr. P. Ruiz)
  • Biology of bacterial populations, mobile genetic elements and resistome (PI: Dr. M.T. Coque)
  • Metagenomics and disease; host-parasite interaction (PI: Dr. R. Del Campo)
  • HIV variants, resistances and diagnostic and clinical implications of the viral genetic variability in national and international cohorts (PI: Dr. A. Holguín)
  • Phylogenetics and evolutional reconstructions of ITS associated pathogens (PI: Dr. J.C. Galán).
  • Chronic respiratory disease: infection and inflammation (Dr. A. Lamas)
  • Study of the evolution of plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance in bacteria (PI: Dr. Á. San Millán)
  • Cystic fibrosis: self-management for the nutritional approach in the search for patient wellbeing (PI: Dr. M.A. Garriga)
