Biofilm and Antibiotic Resistance Mechanisms in Staphylococci

Prof O’Gara’s research addresses the problem of healthcare associated infections focusing on understanding virulence mechanisms in Staphylococcus aureus including MRSA and S. epidermidis isolates that have caused biofilm-associated infections associated with implanted medical devices, with the aim of identifying new prevention and treatment strategies.
