April 2017 - Dr Thomas Vanzieleghem
Biofilm matrix and differences in cell activity and genetics confer bacteria in biofilms at least 20 to 50 times higher tolerance to antibiotics than their planktonic counterparts. This link provides insights in research oriented towards the development of new treatment strategies.
