Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

The role of regulatory evolution in phage ecology

The regulation of genes crucially determines the fitness and function of all organisms. This is particularly relevant for bacteriophages, the viruses that infect bacteria, as they rely on a tightly scheduled program for a successful infection. Read more

Diagnostics for FMF patients and carrier survival in pandemics

Background. Familial Mediterranean Fever (FMF) is a rare inherited genetic disease where patients acquire a mutation on the pyrin gene leading to excessive inflammasome activation and excessive inflammation. Read more

Viral-surface interactions studied by vibrational sum-frequency spectroscopy

The recent COVID-19 pandemic, and in particular fomite transmission of the virus, led to a lot of interest in how viral particles attached to surfaces, their survival times on different materials and how they transferred to hosts. Read more

Data-driven optimal prediction of bacteria growth

This project is devoted to an AI-based prediction of bacteria growth and its control by antibiotics. In synthetic biology, an improved understanding of bacterial regulatory circuits is required to develop complex biological systems with functionalities beyond existing in nature [1, 2]. Read more

Using innovative microfluid technology to study infection dynamics in human lungs

Lung infections and diseases pose significant challenges to global health, impacting millions of individuals worldwide. Aspergillus, Cryptococcus, Pneumocystis, and endemic fungi are major pulmonary fungal pathogens that can result in life-threatening invasive diseases in immuno-compromised patients. Read more

Microbial Induced Corrosion and Spent Nuclear Fuel: Mechanisms and Mitigations

Microbial induced corrosion (MIC) is a significant concern to many industries, including in the nuclear sector, where biodegradation of plant infrastructure can lead to challenges in the safe management of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). Read more

Understanding the evolution of gene regulatory networks through biophysical modelling and machine learning

The ability to coordinate the expression of genes within a cell is at the heart of life. When and how much of a specific gene is turned into a protein is essential for organisms to respond to their environment and to manage resources. Read more
