Structure and Function of Antimicrobial Therapies and their Interaction with Upper Respiratory Biofilms [ 2015 - 2018 ]

Research Grant

[Cite as]

Brief description Bacterial infections of the upper respiratory tract are a major public health problem affecting millions of Australians. Commonly prescribed antibiotics are often not able to eradicate all bacteria as the bacteria often reside in a protective, self-produced gel-like matrix known as biofilm. This Fellowship aims to unravel the interaction of modern anti-infective therapeutics with the biofilm for the development of the next generation of safe and efficacious anti-biofilm strategies.
