Research Profile

Section Affiliation: Molecular Genetics and Cellular Microbiology

Research Interest:

I am interested in studying integrative and conjugative elements (ICEs). ICEs are a distinct group of mobile genetic elements (MGEs) that play a significant role in disseminating antimicrobial resistance(AMR) among bacteria. The spread of the ICEs might contribute to the AMR crisis and might decrease the therapeutic options for many infectious diseases.
