MV Science Forum - Open seminar with Hazem Khalaf

03 november 2020 15:15 – 16:00 Hörsal C3, Campus USÖ, Örebro University or Zoom

Novel antimicrobial peptides against bacterial infections

Hazem Khalaf is a Senior Lecturer in Cellular Microbiology at the School of Medical Sciences, Örebro University. The research is primarily focused on studying host-pathogen interaction and developing alternative antibiotics, bacteriocins. The goal is to develop and test concepts of reliable and potent strategies based on bacteriocins, including combination therapy with antibiotics, that may be used to prevent and treat infections, ultimately contributing to reduce the overall use of antibiotics, development and spreading of antimicrobial resistance.

Coffee will be served from 15.00
