Dr. Windi Muziasari has gained years of experience and the know-how to monitor antibiotic resistance in the environment using a high-throughput gene profiling during her PhD and PostDoc at the University of Helsinki, Finland. She wanted other researchers to gain easy access to this technology and that was why she moved from academia to entrepreneurship by founding Resistomap in 2018. Headquartered in Helsinki, Resistomap’s mission is to mitigate the spread of antibiotic resistance by providing robust tools for monitoring. Resistomap combines molecular genetics methods and data science to provide a service to detect and quantify antibiotic resistance genes from environmental samples such as wastewater and soils. Since fully operating in January 2019, Resistomap has served over 250 projects and analysed over 7000 environmental samples across 40 countries.
