Personal profile

Biography

Dr Trisha Peel is an NHMRC Career Development Fellow and an Academic Infectious Diseases and Antimicrobial Stewardship Physician. She was awarded her Doctorate of Philosophy and completed her post-doctoral fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, USA. Her research is focused on improving patient outcomes, including the prevention of infections following surgery and optimisation of antimicrobial use in the healthcare and community setting. 

Research interests

The Surgical Infection Research Group, led by Dr Trisha Peel, conducts large-scale clinical trials and implementation science research investigating strategies to prevent surgical site infections. The overarching aims of this group are to: a) prevent the development of SSIs, integrating cutting-edge microbiology and genomics with large-scale clinical trials and; b) prevent harm and the emergence of antimicrobial resistance in patients undergoing surgery. This research traversed the translation pathway from Bench to Bedside through to Practice-Based Research and Policy. The ultimate goals of this research program are to improve understanding about how surgical site infections develop, how to best prevent these infections and how to ensure responsible, evidence-based use of antimicrobials.
