Molecular Epidemiology of Intrahospital Infection

Our work is directed towards studying and managing intrahospital infection by collecting samples from each hospital centre being studied according to CDC intrahospital infection criteria.

Isolating and identifying the isolates in each institution’s microbiology laboratory, preparing and carrying out the antibiogram (screening test for extended spectrum beta lactamases) and confirmatory tests following confirmation in the molecular epidemiology laboratory. Preparing the technical data regarding clinical the information collected, supported by the infections’ committee from each hospital centre being studied. The information is stored in databases using software leading to easy correlation between the variables being studied. The isolates are characterised by molecular techniques aimed at establishing bacterial populations’ genetic structure, supported by la bioinformatics tools.

 

 

The group consolidates trans-disciplinary research for investigating and managing intrahospital infection and proposes information systems regarding the bacterial resistance and genetic characteristics of bacterial populations associated with intrahospital infection serving as reference and consultation for the scientific and academic communities, health institutions and generally those interested in the topic.

 

 

Our greatest impact has been constructing a system for managing databases for a Proteomics laboratory and creating a relational database for collecting PROSITE files.
