HCAI Group

Group Leader: Mark Wilcox, Professor of Medical Microbiology m.h.wilcox@leeds.ac.uk or mark.wilcox@nhs.net

The Healthcare Associated Infection (HCAI) Research Group is part of the Leeds Institute of Biomedical and Clinical Sciences (LIBACS) and is closely aligned to the clinical infection service within Leeds.  We consist of team members from the University of Leeds, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Public Health England (PHE). 

Despite the different parent organisations, the group's research is linked to the interests and priorities of HCAI infection diagnosis and management, infection control and antimicrobial resistance and operates a shared goal of excellence across academia, patient care and public health.
