Submitted by ohsadmin

Johan Stedt will defend his PhD thesis entitled Wild Birds as Carriers of Antibiotic Resistant E. coli and Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamases this Friday at Linnaeus University. In his research, Johan has investigated the possible role of wild birds, especially gulls, as disseminators of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Johan has sampled gulls in Europe, South America and North America and characterized resistance profiles and presence of ESBL-genes in a large collection of samples.

The faculty opponent is Professor Dik Mevius from Utrecht University. The defense takes place in Fullriggaren, Linnaeus University, Kalmar at 09:00, June 13th.
