Background Information
Section Affiliation Infections Immunity
Research Interests    My research interests are related with bacterial functions as targets for novel antibiotic drug development. In particular, I am interested in exploring Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) as a model of antibiotic multi-resistant bacteria and as a model of an opportunistic pathogen. By understanding the mechanism of action of novel growth and virulence inhibitors it is possible to further develop drugs into more effective ways to treat Bcc and other multi-resistant bacterial infections.
