The Experimental Bacteriology Unit (UBE) is a Research Unit headed by Prof. Amy Gassama Sow, Full Professor of Bacteriology-Virology, who is responsible for a senior technician and a laboratory worker. Since 2014, the unit has welcomed Dr Guillaume Constantin de Magny, researcher from the MIVEGEC unit (IRD / CNRS / UM).
The Unit's main research theme is: Antibiotic resistance and Enteric infections.
The problem is approached with a double approach: fundamental using the most efficient techniques of molecular and applied biology while not losing sight of the interest of this research for the care of patients and the understanding of the diffusion of strains and antibiotic resistance.
Around this theme, several activities are developed:
Monitoring of antibiotic resistance of enterobacteriaceae strains using the "One Health" approach
Molecular epidemiology and antibiotic resistance of enteric bacteria
Assessment of microbiological risks associated with food and the environment
Development of diagnostic tools for the detection of food pathogens in food and the environment
