Content of research

Opportunistic infections are now encountered frequently and the rates of multidrug resistance have increased considerably in recent years. Our research promotes the development of novel inhibitors or strategies that counteract the contribution of efflux transporters to drug resistance and virulence.

Current Research Programs

  1. 1. Development of therapeutic strategies to control infectious diseases
  2. 2. Regulation and physiological function of membrane transporters in pathogenic bacteria
  3. 3. NanoSystems biology of membrane transporters
  4. 4. Development of new devices to detect bacteria
  5. 5. 3D imaging of bio-nanostructures by electron tomography
