Novel approaches to fight bacteria

From understanding the crossing of membrane barrier to the development of new nanotechnology-based drugs

The raise of antimicrobial resistance urges the development of novel approaches to bring antibiotics into bacteria. This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary overview of EUfunded research in this field. The following topics will be covered:

  • Introductory to EU-funded projects
  • Assays and mechanism of action
  • Nanoencapsulation
  • Mass-spectrometry & fluorescence
  • In vitro, ex vivo and in vivo animal models
  • Translation to clinical development
  • Impact of porin structure on antibiotic permeability
  • Efflux pumps

Organized by:
