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.

Expertise

Jeg har gennem de senest 13 år haft mit fokus på området antimikrobiel resistens. Særligt med fokus på brugen af antimikrobielle vækstfremmer i danske produktions dyr, hvor genetisk karakterisering af resistensgener og Mobile Genetiske Elementer (MGE) som plasmider og transposoner, har indikeret transmission fra dyr til mennesker.

Forbruget af antimikrobielle stoffer for forekomst af resistente bakterier og specifikke resistensgener i produktionsdyr, fødevare og mennesker er blevet undersøgt, herunder måden hvorpå transmissionen har foregået og effekten af moderne landbrug på miljøet.

Specielt har arbejdet været fokuseret på Enterokokker og karakterisering af MGE i disse.
