The ICU Microbiome Project: The Ecology of AMR

The goal of this project is to establish an ICU-based sentinel surveillance network in Africa, describe prevalent and incident patterns of colonization in representative ICU’s and evaluate the correlation between AMR patterns in clinical isolates and in surveillance cultures of the ICU microbiome. Sentinel surveillance through ICU AMR monitoring and data sharing could be used identify modifiable factors in the persistence and spread of AMR.
