    Antimicrobial resistance and novel therapies, University of Adelaide

    Professor Trott completed his veterinary degree at Murdoch University and worked in small animal practice for eight years. Following a PhD on intestinal spirochaetes, he completed a three year post-doc at the National Animal Disease Center in Ames, Iowa, USA. He then taught veterinary microbiology and antimicrobial chemotherapy at The University of Queensland for 10 years whilst conducting research on gastrointestinal diseases, microbial ecology and virulence/antimicrobial resistance in bacterial pathogens. In 2010, he joined The University of Adelaide School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and his research areas have expanded to include antimicrobial resistance ecology, repurposing existing drug classes for development as new anti-infectives, and the effect of antimicrobials on the gut microbiome. He established and is the inaugural Director of the Australian Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance Ecology, working closely with Australia’s major animal industries (both livestock and companion animal) in the areas of prudent antimicrobial use, antimicrobial stewardship and confirming/ensuring that rates of resistance in animal pathogens, zoonotic and commensal bacteria remain low by international standards. At the World Congress, Professor Trott will be speaking on antimicrobial resistance and the development of novel antibacterial therapies.
