Lecturer, Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences
Dr Siti Hanna Muharram joined the Institute of Health Sciences, Universiti Brunei Darussalam in 2007 as a Lecturer in Medical Microbiology.
She is a trained Microbiologist, having graduated from the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom where she obtained her Masters in Molecular Medical Microbiology and PhD in Pharmacy (Microbiology). She obtained her Bachelor of Sciences (Hons) in BioMedical Sciences from University of Bradford, United Kingdom.
At the Institute, she is a convener for various Modules for Undergraduate BHSc Medicine and Biomedical Sciences programme.
Herâ€ Neuroinfections in Brunei Darussalamâ€ (UBD/BRC-1) research team are developing the blood-brain-barrier model to investigate dengue and pneumococcal infections in Brunei Darussalam. Her research team is currently working together with researchers from Kagawa University to study the antibacterial activity of rare sugars on clinical bacterial strains.
Her research interest is mostly in the area of microbiology specifically Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Dengue, Community and Hospital-Acquired Infections.
Antibiotic resistance in both Gram Positive and Gram Negative bacteria
Quorum sensing systems in Bacteria
Community and Hospital Acquired Infections
Carrier status of bacteria in the community
