Antibiotic Resistance

Sara Soto Explains the NoMorFilm project

"The aim of the NoMorFilm project is to screen microalgae—marine microorganisms—to discover new molecules that can inhibit the formation of bacterial and fungal biofilms"

Dr Sara Soto (ISGlobal), coordinator of NoMorFilm, explains the project, which is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme. The aim of NoMorFilm is to screen microalgae for new antibiotics with activity against the bacteria and fungi responsible for the infections that occur around prosthetic devices and catheters.
