About This Project

In Nepal people and primates come into close contact where humans both intentionally and unintentionally feed the resident primates. Close contact allow for the transmission of infections including methicillin resistant S. aureus MRSA, which can be deadly. We will characterize MRSA in primate saliva and environment and compare with human isolates to make predictions about the direction of transmission of MRSA, tuberculosis, and other potentially deadly infections.
