Infection control and the treatment of multiply drug resistant bacterial infections using novel antimicrobial agents
My research interests are in the area of biomedical sciences and relate to the control and treatment of multiply drug resistant bacterial infections using novel antimicrobial agents.
Under control of infection I am involved in the development of better systems for hand-washing including evaluating the basic science behind the current systems and evaluating novel drying methods and novel antibacterial soaps.
In evaluating new antimicrobial agents for treatment rather than prevention, I test novel agents for their level of activity and rate of inhibition/kill against planktonic and sessile (biofilm) bacteria, I also investigate modes of action. The chemical isolation and identification of novel antimicrobial agents from plants (and other sources) is also part of this research, as is and developing new modes of topical delivery for these active agents.
