Biology of Staphylococcal Infections
The team’s work focuses on the biology of the human bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus.
The genus Staphylococcus englobes Gram-positive bacteria that causes a variety of life-threatening diseases. Despite the available means of antibiotic treatment, the control of staphylococcal infections is hampered by the constant increase in the prevalence of multi-resistant strains in clinical isolates. Identifying new therapeutic strategies to combat staphylococcal infections is therefore both a human health and economic issue.
