Research area

Clinical microbiology on development of diagnostic tools, pathogen identification and surveillance, using tests such as phenotypic tests, MALDI-TOF and molecular tests.

Supervision on the day-to-day routine of the NSR microbiology laboratory for detection and identification of bacterial species causing respiratory infections including pneumococcal isolates. A major part involves phenotypical diagnostic methods, use of MALDI-TOF test and final using NGS for species identification, clone relationship (MLST typing) and evaluation of resistance genes.
