Dr Landersdorfer's research focuses on designing innovative optimised antibiotic combination dosing strategies to combat multidrug-resistant bacteria that can cause life-threatening infections. She also develops novel mechanism-based mathematical models for concentrations and effects of antibiotics and other drugs to optimise patient therapy in clinical practice. Results from her research have impacted on treatment of patients in hospitals internationally. She was awarded a prestigious NHMRC Career Development Fellowship and received the ASCEPT Denis Wade J&J New Investigator Award in 2013. Outside of work Cornelia likes to practice her foreign language skills and also to explore bike trails around Melbourne.
