Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018 (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Henderson, J., Ciesielczuk, H., Nelson, S., & Wilks, M. (2018, November). Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018. Poster presented at Federation of Infection Sciences Conference 2018

Carbapenems are broad spectrum antibiotics reserved for patients who are extremely ill or suspected of having an infection caused by a multidrug resistant organism (Nordmann et al., 2011). Over the past ten years there has been a dramatic increase in... Read More about Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018.

Characterisation of a dual species perfusion biofilm model (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Steven, J., & Nelson, S. (2018, June). Characterisation of a dual species perfusion biofilm model. Poster presented at Microbiology Society Early Career Microbiologists’ Forum Summer Conference

An estimated 65–80% of human infections are biofilm-related. As the biofilm mode of growth significantly contributes to bacterial tolerance of antimicrobial treatment, this has important ramifications for patient morbidity and associated healthcare c...

Isolation and characterisation of bacteriophages for use against biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Box, J., Turner, D., & Nelson, S. (2018, June). Isolation and characterisation of bacteriophages for use against biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates. Poster presented at Microbiology Society Early Career Microbiologists’ Forum Summer Conference

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a World Health Organization priority 1, ESKAPE pathogen that is capable of causing a wide spectrum of nosocomial and community-acquired infections. It employs a wide range of antibiotic resistance mechanisms and is often dif...
