Senior Clinical Microbiologist

Miliya Thyl is a Cambodian Clinical Microbiologist who has worked at the Cambodia-Oxford Medical Research Unit (COMRU) based at Angkor Hospital for Children (AHC) in Siem Reap, Cambodia since 2013.

Thyl obtained his medical degree from the International University (IU) in Cambodia in 2010. In 2013 Thyl completed his Paediatric Certificate at AHC and his International Postgraduate Paediatric Certificate (IPPC) from Westmead University, Australia. He then completed his training in clinical microbiology at AHC in 2016.

During his time with COMRU Thyl has been involved in research that has led to many peer-reviewed publications in the areas of invasive bacterial infections, healthcare associated infections and antimicrobial resistance in children in Southeast Asia.

Thyl currently provides support for the diagnosis and clinical management of patients at AHC with suspected and proven infection. He provides a valuable link between the microbiology laboratory and the hospital clinical staff and works to make the best use of this link to the increased benefit of the patients. He is also a key member of the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) program at AHC.

Thyl is actively working on antimicrobial stewardship programs both within AHC and with the Cambodia Ministry of Health to expand these programs to a national level. He is also part of the Cambodia national antimicrobial resistance (AMR) working group and is a local investigator on the Wellcome-funded ACORN project, which is a multi-country project conducting active AMR surveillance in low- and middle-income countries in Southeast Asia.
