Research/publications

Marc Bonten has initiated various large-scale epidemiological studies on the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases. His expertise ranges from clinical studies to the mathematical modelling of antibiotic resistance and emerging infectious diseases. His models were a powerful tool for better understanding and thus combatting the spread of infection with resistant bacteria in hospitals. As a result, Bonten became the face of antibiotic resistance in the Netherlands. He coordinates several international research consortia that rapidly analyse large patient cohorts and introduce innovative methods in clinical studies. The findings of these studies can be applied directly in the battle against resistant bacteria and the treatment of new infectious diseases such as COVID-19.
