New models and methods for studying infection – Development of new concepts for infection control in clinical applications.

The aim is to have a better understanding of the pathogenesis of infections associated with medical devices and to evaluate new antimicrobial strategies. Bacterial pathogens causing implant extractions are evaluated by assessing their virulence, such as their ability to form biofilms and susceptibility to antibiotics. A standardized diagnostic method, with the potential to guide antimicrobial treatment decisions of clinical infections with a biofilm origin, has been recently developed and will be verified in clinical studies. In addition, the project aims at understanding the mechanisms by which staphylococci develop biofilms on implant surfaces with different physicochemical properties using microbiological, molecular and microscopy methods.
