General Information

  • Type: Partner looking for projects
  • Country: Norway (NO)

Research area

  • Short description of research interests:

    We have studied antimicrobial peptides (bacteriocins) and performed synergy studies against vancomycin resistant enterococci (both faecalis and faecium). We have characterised their modes of action at molecular level. We have identified combinations that are very potent against these bugs at submicromolar consentrations, leaving no-resistant mutants to arise. Looking for Projects to develope these peptides into diagnostics kits or/and therapeutic tools to prevent and treat VRE infection.

  • Keywords:

    Enterococcus; VRE; stress response; non-antibiotic approach; antimicrobial peptides.
