6th Biofilm Course

Copenhagen, Denmark
24 - 25 October 2019

The importance of the bacterial biofilm mode of growth is becoming increasingly renowned as improved methods to study sessile bacteria have become available. Experimental evidence has accumulated over the years showing that biofilms tolerate antimicrobial properties of the immune system, antiseptics and antibiotics.

Especially within infections biofilms have been found to play a detrimental role. In this respect, the increased tolerance of biofilms has strengthened the belief that a chronic infection equals the biofilm state of growth.
