Our research group work with Antimicrobial Resistance in different environments included water and sewage. We have already interesting preliminary results about this issue and we would like to amplify our research.
To study the AMR we use the metagenomic approach and bioinformatics tools to analyze the results. To detect the CEC´s we use the LC/MS/MS.
Our main interest is shown the human exposition to CEC´s from water and how this could affect the gut resistome in different population groups: farmworkers, village workers, children, etc.
UFRGS is among the five largest and most qualified universities in Brazil and is considered one of the most well-known universities in Latin America.

The UFRGS International Campus is a university concept in the world and in the world, a university that promotes academic, scientific and cultural cooperation with several countries, multilateral consortia and supranational bodies through international public-private partnerships. The Institute of Basic Health Sciences (ICBS), a center for Teaching, Research and Extension in basic health areas, is the Unit of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), responsible for the Undergraduate Course in Biomedicine of the Institution and six Post-Graduate Programs: Physiology, Biochemistry, Neurosciences, Agricultural and Environmental Microbiology, Life and Health Chemistry and Pharmacology and Therapeutics. It has facilities in the Campus Centro. The ICBS is an Institute of multidisciplinary character, where the professors develop important projects of research and extension for the national scientific and technological development, with international insertion through its publications. There are 40 research groups registered with CNPq. It has a multi-user structure with several large equipments available to all researchers. In addition to the Biomedicine course, the Institute attends another 20 undergraduate courses at UFRGS. In its dependencies, circulate, weekly, about two thousand students. The PPGMAA has been working since 1989 in the most different areas of microbiology and has a specific line of research focused on human-microorganism-environment interaction. Academically, the institute conducts seminars, courses, and lectures that promote the dissemination of knowledge in the area of microbiology.
