Antimicrobial Resistance: Can we rapidly detect pathogens in blood stream infections and which drugs will work on them?

Funded by DST IMPRINT, in collaboration with IISc

MSCH is the industry partner on a multi-site, interdisciplinary project to rapidly detect pathogens in ICU patients suspected to have blood stream infections. In addition to detection, we also aim to detect antimicrobial resistance genes which will help  doctors decide which antibiotics might be needed and which antibiotics need not be used.
