Marion Hutinel defended her Ph.D. thesis
The work entitled “The role of wastewater in surveillance and emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria” was successfully defended by Marion Hutinel.
Marion Hutinel at CARe defended her doctoral thesis entitled “The role of wastewater in surveillance and emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria” on June 17th.
An interested audience followed the event via Zoom. Prof Henning Sörum, Norwegian University of Life Sceinces was the main opponent.
Marion's dissertation gives opportunities to generate clinically relevant monitoring data for antibiotic resistance through sewage analyses in a resource-efficient way. However, the thesis also emphasizes certain limitations and factors, which should be regarded when doing such sewage analyses.
The work has been done under Associate Professor Carl-Fredrik Flach's supervision at the Department of Infectious diseases, Institute of Biomedicine.
Dr. Hutinel's thesis is based on the following papers:
