This Bridging the Gaps seminar is titled ‘Antibiotic resistance in zoonotic pathogen isolated from farm animals with snap shot of antibiotic resistance and pilli distribution in emerging invasive pneumococcal serotypes and clonal type’.

Dr Nabin Rayamajhi, University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, is keen to meet potential collaborators on AMR and is particularly willing to help on sample analysis and research collaboration.

In this seminar Dr Rayamajhi will share some of his research findings on molecular characterization of antimicrobial resistance in food borne zoonotic pathogens and pneumococcal invasive isolates. His group have analyzed the significance of unique mutation identified in conserved region of SHV and TEM ß-lactamases of food borne zoonotic pathogens (Salmonella, E. coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae) by using site directed mutagenesis, cloning and expression of target protein, enzyme kinetics and molecular docking simulation experiments. Their research has identified clinically significant plasmid replicon types, potential toxins and antimicrobial resistance genes that might contribute to the success of E. fergusonii as an important pig pathogen and possible emerging opportunistic zoonotic pathogen. (South Korea, 2003-2010). They have also investigated antimicrobial resistance and pili distribution in large set of emerging invasive pneumococcal serotypes and clonal types at CDC Streptococcal laboratory (CDC, Atlanta, 2010-2011).

Open to University of Nottingham staff and postgraduate students. This event is of particular interest to researchers in Biosciences, Veterinary Medicine & Science and Geography.
