Microbiologia y control de infecciones

Líneas de investigación

Infecciones de transmisión sexual (ITS).
- Estudios enfocados a las características microbiológicas de los microorganismos implicados en las ITS junto con es estudios epidemiológicos para conocer su distribución en la población y poder establecer posteriormente medidas de prevención y control.

Infecciones Relacionadas con la Atención Sanitaria (IRAS).
- Estudios de incidencia de infecciones tras cirugías protésicas de cadera y rodilla; de cirugía de colon, cirugía cardiaca; infecciones relacionadas con dispositivos; infecciones nosocomiales por microorganismos multirresistentes…

Infecciones por patógenos emergentes y altamente peligrosos.
- El Servicio de Microbiología Clínica y Control de Infección está integrado en la Joint Action EMERGE patrocinada por la Unión Europea de que incluye una red de aproximadamente 40 laboratorios europeos de diagnóstico orientados hacía el diagnóstico de bacterias del grupo 3 de riesgo y de virus de los grupos de riesgo 3 y 4. EMERGE tiene el objetivo de proporcionar una respuesta común y eficiente, coordinada y efectiva frente a los brotes de enfermedades infecciosas a novel europeo y extraeuropeo.

Infecciones por el virus del papiloma humano (HPV).
- Estudio microbiológico de los HPV encaminados al estudio de los diversos genotipos y expresión de los mismos junto con estudios epidemiológicos para conocer su incidencia y su relación con el cáncer de cérvix.

Evaluación y aplicación clínica de nuevos métodos de diagnóstico microbiológico.
- Estudios encaminados a conocer la sensibilidad, especificidad, y en definitiva la eficacia y utilidad de los métodos de diagnóstico que se introducen en los laboratorios de microbiología en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de las enfermedades infecciosas.

Caracterización fenotípica y molecular de bacterias de interés epidemiológico.

Identificación y sensibilidad en hongos emergentes causantes de enfermedad fúngica invasora.

Evaluación de tecnología sanitaria relacionada con el diagnóstico de las enfermedades infecciosas.

Epidemiología de enfermedades infecciosas transmisibles y en pacientes inmunodeprimidos.
