Prof Kat Holt joined Monash University in January 2019. Prof Holt is a HHMI-Gates International Scholar and Viertel Foundation Senior Medical Research Fellow and leads a research group in the Department of Infectious Diseases. Her research focus is microbial genomics, developing and applying sequencing-based approaches to understanding bacterial pathogens, the microbiome and infectious disease. Kat and her research group at Monash collaborate with a wide range of clinical and public health labs both locally and internationally, investigating a range of problems including healthcare-associated infections, the evolution and spread of antimicrobial resistance, and global health pathogens such as typhoid, dysentery and tuberculosis.
