Natural antimicrobials:

Bacterial motility and quorum sensing are often linked with infection and microbial colonization of surfaces. We have identified different natural plant and berry extracts that impair bacterial motility and quorum sensing and could therefore play a role in mitigating infections in clinical settings. Our team is working on:

  • Synergistic interactions of natural antimicrobials with synthetic antibiotics
  • Anti-infectious activity of natural extracts
  • Anti-biofilm action of natural extracts
