New publication on chronic biofilm-associated infections

30.8.2018

Scientists at Fraunhofer ITEM are dedicated to understanding lung diseases and developing more predictive preclinical models as better tools for drug testing. A major focus of research is on chronic biofilm-associated infections. In recent studies we have investigated how Pseudomonas aeruginosa, one of the most prevalent pathogens establishing recalcitrant lung infections, interacts with the micro-environment in the human lung.
