Molecular Bacteriology

HZI cpi leute 01

Hospital germs are a huge problem - despite controlled hygiene numerous patients capture so-called hospital acquired infections in addition to their actual disease. In many cases the pathogens are resistant to antibiotics and, therefore, very difficult to combat. Read more about how bacteria join forces and what the researchers can do to avoid that.


The group Molecular Bacteriology is based at the TWINCORE in Hannover.

  • Wehrhafte Biofilme
    Ein Bakterium kommt selten allein; wenn es erst hinreichend viele sind, schließen sie sich zu Lebensgemeinschaften zusammen: Biofilmen. Und diese Biofilme verteidigen sich gegen Angreifer mit chemischen Waffen. Lassen Sie sich von dem Wissenschaftler Carsten Matz in die Welt der Biofilme mitnehmen.
