Type of student:  Both types will be considered (i.e. flexible with project)

One way to prevent the usage of antibiotics for infections is by maintaining balanced microbiota through probiotics. Here, we characterize microbiota using microbiome next generation sequencing and culture-based approaches to identify probiotics those can be used to eliminate pathogens. With our strong expertise in antibiotic resistance, comprehensive understanding of antibiotic resistance mechanisms and worldwide epidemiology, we are confident that the probiotics we develop will provide health benefits.
