Platform for genomic epidemiology and experimental microbiology

The group led by Prof. Claudio Bandi focuses on two main topics, the infections caused by multi-drug resistant bacteria, and some neglected parasitic and vector-borne diseases, with a particular attention for infections of pediatric interest. The group is setting up an innovative platform for genomic epidemiology (UNIMI Sky Net), based on biomolecular, computational and genomic tools, which will help to detect and control epidemic outbreaks, with a particular focus on nosocomial infections.
