Dr. Gunnar Kahlmeter is quite a celebrity in his field of expertise. As a clinical microbiologist since 1971, he’s been battling antimicrobial resistance all his life, and most of his research has been in antimicrobial resistance and infection control.
Fredrik Dyrkell is the CTO of 1928 Diagnostics. His expertise is within software development, bioinformatics, user experience, quality and regulatory.
This pathogen is responsible for one of the most common transmissible diarrheal infections that occur in healthcare settings.
Vancomycin-resistant E. faecium is a growing concern for public health. The bacteria can colonize human guts without causing disease, but an estimated 1300 people die from E. faecium infections each year in the US alone.
This bacteria is normally a harmless commensal, but can become a danger if it ends up in the wrong place or produces harmful toxins.
K. pneumoniae is becoming resistant to the last line of antibiotics.
One of the most common sexually transmitted infections that is becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics.
P. aeruginosa is responsible for an estimated 51,000 hospital acquired infections each year in the US alone.
Despite being 1 out of 4 global key causes for diarrhoeal diseases, outbreaks of S. enterica are rarely discovered. It is time to change that.
