    Associate Professor Sam Abraham
    BSc, MSc, PhD

    Associate Professor in Microbiology

    About me

    I grew up in Kerala, in the south west of India. In 2006, I received my BSc, in Zoology from Mahatma Gandhi University in Kerala. Shortly after, I moved to Australia in pursuit of higher education and joined the University of Wollongong to undertake a Masters in Biotechnology. Subsequently, I completed a PhD in Micro and Molecular Biology from  the University of Wollongong (2012) undertaking my research at the Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Research Institute, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries. In 2012, I moved to the University of Adelaide, to undertake a post-doctoral research fellowship in Antimicrobial Resistance with A/Prof. Darren Trott. Along with A/Prof. Trott, I established the First National Network on Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance in Australian Animals. In 2015, I joined Murdoch University as an academic lecture in microbiology.

    Teaching area

    I teach veterinary and medical microbiology and antimicrobial resistance at Murdoch University.

    Research areas

    My research is focused on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacterial pathogens. I also focus on the effects of critical antimicrobials on the microbiota of the gastrointestinal tract, antimicrobial resistance surveillance, horizontal gene transfer of antimicrobial resistance genes and ecology and evolution of zoonotic pathogens.

    Research Expertise:

    1. Antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella and coagulase positive staphylococci (MRSA & MRSP)
    2. Antimicrobial resistance surveillance
    3. Bacterial and antimicrobial resistance typing using whole genome sequencing and other molecular techniques
    4. Diagnostic microbiology
    5. Contract research with pharmaceutical industries for antimicrobial susceptibility testing.

    Links with Industry Partners:

    I have extensive experience in working with Industry
    partners such as New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, Zoetis
    (formerly, Pfizer Animal Health), Novartis, International Animal Health
    Products and start-up companies working on new antimicrobials. I also work
    closely with Australian network of Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratories.

    Research Collaborations:

    I collaborate with a number of national and international researchers

    International Collaborators: Prof. James R Johnson (University of Minnesota), Prof. John Fairbrother (University of Montreal)

    National Collaborators: A/Prof. Geoffrey Coombs (Fiona Stanley Hospital), A.Prof. Darren Trott, (University of Adelaide), Prof. John Turnidge (University of Adelaide), A.Prof. David Jordan (NSW DPI), Prof. Mary Barton (University of South Australia), Prof. David Gordon (Australian National University), A/Prof. Jacqui Norris (University of Sydney), Dr. Mark O’Dea (Murdoch University) and Dr. Mitchell D. Groves (Safe Food QLD)
