Development of Raman Spectroscopy as a Surveillance Technology for Antimicrobial Resistance

The project intends to create a Raman database by collecting and recording Raman spectra at every step of various bacterial strains that are sensitive, intermediate or resistant to antimicrobial agents. The focus is to understand the progression/emergence of AMR to work as a supportive surveillance technology. The spectral database will also aid in prediction of possible resistance in bacterial strains. we aim to evaluate how bio spectroscopy, in particular Raman spectroscopy, can be utilised to fingerprint microbiomes and study the progression of AMR resistance in bacteria
