Bacterial Infections and antimicrobial therapy group (BIAT)

Dr. Eduard Torrents

RESEARCH LINES and OUR GOALS:

1. To understand the molecular basis of transcriptional regulation of the different genes involved in the bacterial DNA synthesis.

2. Unravel the molecular mechanisms of bacterial virulence and biofilm formation. To understand the physiology of bacteria growing in a biofilm.

3. New drug delivery systems to kill bacteria living in biofilms - Treatment of chronic bacterial infections.

4. Discovery of new antimicrobial therapies to combat bacterial infections by the application of nanomedicine techniques.

5. Developing new systems to mimic bacterial wound healing infections.

6. To develop bacterial vaccines.

Selected publications (from the last 3 years):
