Join us on this interesting seminar about Dr. Ana Rita Brochado Group Leader at Würzburg University. The seminar is in Swedish.

My recently formed group investigates how drugs, in particular pairwise combinations thereof, impact Gram-negative pathogens using systems biology tools. I have previously shown that antibiotic interactions are highly species-specific, and even across strains of the same species the outcome of combinations can considerably change. Our research focuses on understanding species-specificity of drug combinations, with particular interest in elucidating the killing properties of drug combinations across species, vastly unknown to date.
