CALL DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES

Diagnostics is the cornerstone of medical practice. In many fields, diagnostics focus on narrow and specific questions, providing quick and unequivocal answers. Conversely, diagnostics applied to clinical microbiology laboratories must deal with dozens of potential pathogens, often emerging and evolving towards multi-drug-resistant phenotypes and/or responsible for various syndromes. Recent technological advances have stimulated the development of new tests capable of detecting and identifying microorganisms more quickly and accurately, as well as simultaneously detect multiple pathogens (syndromic tests) and/or antibiotic resistance mechanisms. The current arsenal of advanced diagnostic tests has revolutionized the management approach of clinical microbiology laboratories, but many questions still remain unanswered; furthermore, the best way to use them is still under study. Advanced diagnostics themselves have clarified some questions, but at the same time, they have created the need to delve into scientific aspects of their implementation to make these new tests operational and integrated into existing practice. Key aspects include:

Projects responding to this call should aim at improving and/or establishing new advanced, innovative, fast, and precise techniques to be applied in clinical microbiology diagnostics, necessary for combating antibiotic-resistant infections. The call will include applications of WGS, which are becoming increasingly common in clinical microbiology laboratories, as well as the implementation of algorithms in the decision-making process through computers with capabilities simulating human intelligence (AI).
