Uniquely focused on disease-causing bacteria
The MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection (CMBI) is a cross-faculty, multidisciplinary research centre comprising over 55 academic and postdoctoral research staff and 35 postgraduate students.
The CMBI was established in July 2012 and is funded by the Medical Research Council and Imperial College London. It has a unique focus on the study of disease-causing bacteria and represents the largest grouping of scientists and clinicians in the UK working on the mechanisms of virulence of bacterial pathogens. The overall goals of the CMBI are to understand the biology of infectious diseases with an emphasis on bacterial infections, and to translate this information into novel strategies for preventing and treating microbial disease.
Our research themes include infection genomics, cellular and structural microbiology, host innate immunity, and antimicrobial resistance and persistence.
