Project: Understanding biofilm formation of Legionella pneumphila as a means to overcome individual infections and general outbreaks

project duration
01-DEC-02 – 30-NOV-06
abstract
The project aims to generate clear understanding on the conditions for the development of Legionella pneumophila in multispecies biofilms. Knowledge about these biofilms can provide information enabling us to disrupt these cell layers and enhance the fight against Legionella pneumphila. The objective is to find alternative, environmentally friendly approches to control Legionella pneumophila replication in association with biofilms, probably one of the major sources of Legionella-outbreaks
