This 1 ECTS course at Karolinska Institutet 8-9 February 2018 aims to address selected important aspects of biofilm formation and its regulation. Topics covered will include prevention of microbial biofilm formation, biofilm-host interaction and the impact of biofilm formation in the clinical setting. In the practicals, different microbial biofilm models and principle biofilm-related experiments will be demonstrated and performed by the participants on an individual basis in order to encourage critical assessment of experimental data. The course will also discuss how biofilm derived principles benefit other research areas.
Registration deadline – 22 December 2017
