Translational Research on Combating Antimicrobial Resistance


The driving concept of TROCAR is to investigate the fundamentals of the epidemiology of new highly virulent multiresistant strains. The project will focus on three major strategic aims: Definition of the major high-risk resistant clones; Genomic and proteomic approaches to investigating specific traits in comparison with non-epidemic clones; And, the development of bioinformatics tools to fully exploit the genomics data.


TROCAR-ESCMID “Conference on Multidrug Resistant High Risk Clones (MDR-HiRiC): Features, Epidemiology and Detection”

After three years of intense hard working the TROCAR project finally reached its final stage. To conclude with, the TROCAR consortium decided to put together the investigations and results collected from all partners and disseminate them to the scientific community in a free-for-all conference held in Barcelona last 5th and 6th of June 2012.
