Antibiotic resistance can be categorized in three types: Natural or intrinsic resistance, Mutational resistance and the Extra chromosomal or acquired resistance (Disseminated by plasmids or transposons). Active<sup> </sup>efflux systems that act synergistically with the outer membrane<sup> </sup>could have a high level of participation in the intrinsic and<sup> </sup>the acquired antibiotic resistance of gram-negative bacteria. Phenotypic studies in <em>Acinetobacter baumannii </em>have shown the bacterium to be multidrug resistant. Besides being resistant to antibiotics they exhibit reduced susceptibility to dyes, and disinfectants. Thus, my research focus is to perform structure and function studies on the MDR efflux pumps and establish their role in the better survival of the bacterium. </p><h3>Links</h3><ul> <li>{{IconPDF}} <a href="/assets/pdf/depts/prevMed/research/infectiousDiseaseLab/CV/vijaya%20CV.pdf">Curriculum Vitae</a> </li></ul>
