Professor Thomas Rogers

Chair in Clinical Microbiology/Head of (Clinical Microbiology)
SIR PATRICK DUN LAB


My main research interest is in invasive fungal infections, including molecular diagnostics, pathogenesis, host-pathogen interactions, and antifungal therapies. Also, research into nosocomial infections including Clostridium difficile colitis. Other current research includes study of Escherichia coli bacteraemia focusing on pathogenic mechanisms, epidemiology and antibiotic resistance.
  Antibiotics   Bacteriology and bacterial pathogenesis   Fungal Diseases   Infectious Diseases/Agents   Mycology and fungal pathogenesis   Tuberculosis
 Evaluation of next generation sequencing to investigate the epidemiology of Clostridium difficile infection
 Development of novel management strategies for invasive aspergillosis "MANASP"
