Yueran Hou is a senior PhD researcher in the McClean lab. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Pharmaceutical Engineering at Beijing University of Chemical Technology in China, and her MSc in Biotechnology at University College Dublin. Yueran is interested in Klebsiella as it is a typical antimicrobial resistant pathogen, and the mortality rate is over 50%. Moreover, many antimicrobial resistance genes were firstly found in K. pneumoniae then spread into other Enterobacteriaceae species. Therefore, she wants to investigate an efficacious vaccine that could solve the increasing Klebsiella infection numbers.
