Dr. Sandip Patil is an accomplished Molecular Microbiologist with a strong focus on combating bacterial infectious diseases. His expertise lies in understanding the molecular intricacies of WHO priority list pathogens and their antibacterial resistance mechanisms. He is dedicated to unravelling these complexities to develop effective strategies against resistance, discover novel antimicrobial molecules, and improve treatment outcomes.

Currently serving as a Researcher at Shenzhen Children's Hospital in Shenzhen, China, Dr. Patil actively contributes to research projects in infection epidemiology and clinical molecular microbiology. He has a proven track record of developing and implementing advanced diagnostic workflows that integrate local metadata and public health surveillance data to address urgent epidemiological questions related to outbreaks and antimicrobial resistance. Notably, Dr. Patil specializes in studying the impact of β-lactamase inhibitors, hydrolyzing cephalosporins, mutations on β-lactamase expression, and colistin resistance.

Dr. Patil's journey in molecular microbiology began with a Ph.D. in Microbiology (Bacteriology) from Shoolini University, Solan, India. His doctoral research focused on conducting extensive molecular characterization of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains carrying mec-SSC-IV cassettes associated with the toxin encoding pvl gene. This experience deepened his understanding of genetic factors contributing to antibiotic resistance and fueled his commitment to developing effective treatment strategies.

Throughout his career, Dr. Patil has held various research and academic positions, including a Post-Doc Scientist and an assistant professor. He has received international recognition for his research capabilities and has been honored with the Bill and Melinda Gates Young Investigator Award. Dr. Patil is also an esteemed member of the Global Burden of Diseases Collaborative network. His research findings have been published in high-impact scientific journals, including The Lancet Microbes, and he has presented his work at numerous national and international conferences.

Dr. Patil's dedication to scientific advancement is evident through his active engagement with scientific literature and his participation in conferences and workshops. He has successfully fostered collaborations with renowned scientists and institutions worldwide, further contributing to the global scientific community.
