Welcome to the webpage for the Bioluminescent Superbugs Group in the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. The group combines Siouxsie Wiles' twin passions of bioluminescence (think glow worms and fireflies) and infectious diseases. Current projects in the lab cover three main topics:
- Development of clinically relevant models of Staphylococcus aureus infection
- Rapid evaluation of novel drugs and vaccines for tuberculosis (TB)
- In vivo adaptation of Citrobacter rodentium
Summaries of these projects, and the people who work on them, are coming soon....
