The National University of Ireland (NUIM) team will focus our research on the analysis of antibiotic resistance in the total DNA extracted as well as targeted specific pathogens from the effluent of Irish WWTPs. They will develop guidelines for the detection of resistance in these environmental samples. Dr Walsh is the leader of WP5, communication & dissemination. The NUIM team’s national funder is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
