• antibiotic
As a leading expert in this field, Expert was invited to publish reviews in professional journals (Evolution and ecology of antibiotic resistance genes; The role of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance in nature.) and to serve as a Chief Editor of Frontiers in Antimicrobials, Resistance and Chemotherapy. His main contribution to the field is in understanding the processes that lead to the emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens and how to prevent this.

• microorganism
Expert has received his PhD in Microbiology in 1987 and since then was actively working in several areas of microbiology. His main area of expertise is gut microbiology, in particular, how the gut microbiota is changed due to dietary intervention in ruminants and due to disease in humans. He developed some molecular tools to track some microorganisms.

• bacterium
Expert has a considerable experience in handling anaerobic bacteria and developed additives to the media used that allow the anaerobic bacteria to tolerate the exposure to oxygen.

• microbiological broth
In this area, he developed the cultivation media allowing to obtain a higher yield of a recombinant protein.

• tetracycline
The main area of his expertise - the mechanisms of resistance to tetracyclines, including the newly introduced glycylcyclines such as tigecycline.
