Holden research group

Prof Matt Holden is a molecular microbiologist, whose curiosity into the genetics of bacteria lead him along a bioinfomatic path to study and explore bacterial genomes. His research group’s interests focus on investigating the diversity and evolution of bacterial pathogens. In particular, the survival and success of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and also the application of genomics in clinical settings to combat hospital-associated infections.
