Biofilms: Past, Present and Future

16.11.2016 - 18.11.2016 All day

Biofilms are responsible for 80% of total microbial infections. The objective of this workshop will be to strengthen the updated knowledge about biofilms and analyse the future in the study of this field. The conference will address five subjects:

  • structure and function of biofilms on different microorganisms
  • methods of analysis and diagnosis of biofilms
  • resistance/virulence of biofilms
  • economic/clinical impact of biofilms
  • future on biofilm studies

This will allow attendees to get an overview of the impact of biofilms in both medicine and industry and to acquire the enough knowledge to address their study.
