More than 65% of all human infections are caused by microbial biofilms. Biofilm bacteria are notoriously resistant to antimicrobial substances, including antibiotics. Our goal is to develop new antimicrobial substances that effectively address oral diseases and provide a potent alternative to antibiotics. The industrial partners in this project provide a battery of promising substances that are evaluated for their ability to prevent disease-promoting activities in a biofilm model using fluorescent probes combined with confocal microscopy.
