 Biography
Research Interest :

Raghavendra Amachawadi research interests are in the area of antimicrobial resistance in gut commensals and foodborne pathogens of swine and cattle production systems.  Specifically, He has focused on understanding the mechanisms involved in the propagation and dissemination of antimicrobial resistance and on the role of non-antibiotic alternatives in contribution and mitigation of antimicrobial resistance in gut bacteria of cattle and swine.  This involves both phenotypic and genotypic characterization of existing as well as novel resistance determinants.  His research interests also include investigating both aerobic and or anaerobic bacterial flora of liver abscesses of feedlot cattle.  These studies involve applications of microbiology, molecular epidemiology, and field based nutrition experiments.

Biography :

Fernando Santos Beneit studied Biology at University of León (Spain). He spent ten months as a Socrates-Erasmus grant holder at the department of Molecular Cell Physiology of the “Vrije Universiteit” in Amsterdam (Holland), where he worked with the Gram-negative bacterium, Paracoccus denitrificans. He conducted his PhD in molecular biology at University of León, where he was awarded a PhD (cum laude) in 2010, as well as the 2012 University of León Extraordinary Prize for the best thesis in Biology. He dedicated his ten years to studying phosphate regulation in the model actinomycete Streptomyces coelicolor, with particular focus on secondary metabolite regulation and nutrient stress cross-talk. He developed most of my work at the Institute of Biotechnology of León, but He also collaborated with different researches at the department of Molecular Biology in the Faculty of Biology as well as with several biotechnology companies. In 2013, He worked as postdoctoral researcher in the Institute of Biomedicine and Biotechnology of Cantabria, where his role encompassed not only my ongoing research responsibilities, but also a range of economic and administrative duties. Since 2014 I am working as Research Associate in the Center for Bacterial Cell Biology at Newcastle University where He his studying distinct aspects of the streptomycetes biology.
