Zoonotic Antimicrobial Resistance - Annamari Heikinheimo Group's research focuses on the epidemiology of zoonotic multiresistant bacteria (i.e. bacteria transmitting between animals and humans), aiming to improve knowledge on the occurrence and transmission routes of zoonotic antimicrobial resistant bacteria along the food chain, such as ESBL/pAmpC/carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae and livestock-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Our studies also aim towards implementing strategies to prevent further development and spread of antimicrobial resistant bacteria between animals and humans.
