Work and Research

I work on surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in the routine activities of my laboratory, but also in research. Nosocomial infections have become very common in the development of the world with a heavy burden of antibiotic resistance. In addition, microbial resistance to antibiotics is on the rise, partly due to inadequate use of antibiotics in human medicine, but also due to embezzlement in the agricultural industry. My works contribute to a better knowledge about pathogenic microorganisms in Benin; an improvement of the laboratory practices, awareness of food sellers and better knowledge of plants species that can treat bacterial infections.
