Arif Hussain is a post-doctoral fellow at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He is a trained microbiologist with an expertise on molecular epidemiology of drug-resistant pathogens. Arif did his graduation and post-graduation in the subject of Biotechnology (University of Mysore, India). During his Ph.D. (University of Hyderabad) he worked in the field of molecular epidemiology of extraintestinal E. coli infections in humans and has published his work in peer-reviewed journals of good repute. Arif was also associated with the Indo-German research training group. Currently is working on projects related to public health concerns particularly, the food safety, this project was approved by the Indian funding body UGC. Arif is also serving or has served as an Ad hoc reviewer for Gut Pathogens. He has published 6 manuscripts in American society of Microbiology Journals (Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy and Journal of Bacteriology). One in Plos One and One in International journal of infectious disease.

Research Interest

His research interests include unravelling the population genetic structure, resistance and virulence profiling of medically important/zoonotic pathogens. He is specifically interested in antibiotic resistance of Gram-negative bacteria of clinical significance, particularly those that cause extra-intestinal infections in humans and birds.
