Keywords Molecular typing | Transmission of resistance | Antimicrobial resistance | Surveillance

The main focus of my research is to identify antimicrobial resistance and virulence determinants in bacteria with a focus on Gram-positive bacteria, especially in enterococci.

The effect of modern farming and usage of antimicrobial on the presence and prevalence of antimicrobial resistance throughout the farm to fork chain has been studied and furthermore the effect and transmission of antimicrobial resistance to the environment as a result of animal production has been studied by genetic characterization of bacterial clones and resistant determinants.

In more depth classification of mobile genetic elements and their ability to transfer inter and intra genetic has been determined with a focus on plasmids in Gram-positive bacteria and development of new molecular typing systems for these.
