Bergen Research Foundation grants 20MNOK to new Klebsiella project

December 2018

The Klebsiella pneumoniae project KLEB-GAP is lead by PI Arnfinn Sundsfjord and Co-PI Iren Høyland Löhr. KLEB-GAP is a large, new project involving several Norwegian and international institutions who aim to provide new insights into the ecology, antmicrobial resistance and pathogenicity of Klebsiella pneumoniae. Klebsiella is a key driver in the global spread of antimicrobial resistance and a target for new approaches in diagnostics, surveillance and alternative therapeutics.
