Ana Rita Brochado is an indepen­dent group leader at the Chair of Micro­bi­ol­ogy at the Univer­sity of Würzburg since 2019.

Ana is a systems biolo­gist with a strong inter­est in under­stand­ing how patho­genic bacte­ria react to antibi­otics and their combi­na­tions. Her research focuses on eluci­dat­ing the molec­u­lar mecha­nisms under­ly­ing drug combi­na­tions, using unique systems biology approaches based on high-through­put pheno­typ­ing technolo­gies, joint with compu­ta­tional biology tools for data interpretation.

Soon after she started her group she was awarded a Emmy Noether fellow­ship by the German Research Founda­tion (DFG). Ana Rita Brochado is further­more a junior member of the Research Center for Infec­tious Diseases Univer­sity of Würzburg.
