Project Title: 
Mechanisms and Dissemination of Antibiotic Resistance; Antibiotic Alternatives in Animal Agriculture

The goals of this research are three-fold:

  • Use comparative bacterial genomics to identify, track, and mitigate multidrug resistance in human and animal pathogens
  • Develop a microbiome-based pipeline for the discovery of live microbial approaches to mimic the effects of antibiotics for sustainable animal agriculture
  • Examine pathogen ecology in response to vaccine pressure

Research by this group was featured on the MSI website in November 2019: Substituting Probiotics for Antibiotics in Poultry.
