Reducing the Impact of Infectious Diseases by Supporting Trans-Disciplinary Academic Research

Development of Rapid Methods to Determine Host Susceptibility to Colonization or Infection to Antimicrobial Resistant Pathogens from Stool

We aim to validate the use of a stool coculture system to validate host susceptibility to antimicrobial resistant pathogens from host stool following antibiotic exposure.  A rapid method to determine changes in pathogen viability using dielectrophoresis will be used to determine  resistance to colonization in as little as 4 hours.
