The Antimicrobial Resistance Research Group at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute comprises scientists with broad and varied competence and background , e.g. in bacteriology, molecular epidemiology, veterinary epidemiology, bioinformatics, pharmacology, pathology, food safety, veterinary medicine, veterinary public health.
Being such an interdisciplinary team makes it possible to engage in a variety of research approaches to elucidate AMR development, persistence and dissemination. We study trends, dynamics and mechanisms, the role of wildlife and environment as well as the role of the biofilm lifestyle. The group’s competence includes both traditional bacteriological methods, as well as modern molecular methods including whole genome sequence studies.
