Dr Nguyễn Trung Thành

Senior Research Assistant

Nguyen Trung Thanh, PhD’s research interests are understanding the mechanism of pathogenic bacteria-mediated disease transmission from animal to human and the genetic circulation of virulence and antibiotic resistance of Gram-positive bacteria in the community, e.g., MRSA, Streptococcus pneumonia, and Streptococcus suis.

His current major projects include: “The role of biofilm genes in virulence and antimicrobial resistance of Streptococcus suis serotype 2”, “Streptococcus pneumoniae carriage in healthy and community-acquired pneumonia children in the community: the prevalence and antimicrobial susceptibility profiles in Vietnam (CHANCES)” and “An integrated management-based approach for surveillance and control of zoonosis in emerging livestock systems”.



Joined OUCRU as a Senior Research Assistant (postdoc), Zoonoses group.


Completed his two-year postdoctoral training, studying the molecular microbiology of virulence and antibiotics resistance of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in Samsung Biomedical Research Institute, SKKU.



PhD, Molecular and Cell Biology from SungKyunKwan University (SKKU) School of Medicine, South Korea.

His PhD training was focused on post-translational modification of protein in the cancer cells with the thesis entitled “Studies on inhibitors and activators of the ubiquitin pathway as anti-cancer therapeutics”.


B.Eng. in Biotechnology from Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology
