Project SFB 766 – The Bacterial Cell Envelope: Structure, Function and Infection Interface

Basic data

Acronym:
SFB 766
Title:
The Bacterial Cell Envelope: Structure, Function and Infection Interface
Duration:
01/07/2015 to 30/06/2019
Abstract / short description:
Research in this SFB is dedicated to expanding our understanding of the structure, function, and biosynthesis of the bacterial cell envelope. Furthermore, interactions of the cell envelope with the environment and with the host, its contribution to pathogenicity, and its role in the mode of action of new antibiotics as well as in antibiotic resistance will be investigated. These aspects will be studied in a broad range of bacteria covering major model organisms as well as important human pathogens.
Our aim is to identify new targets for antimicrobial agents, vaccines, and diagnostics in the area of the bacterial cell envelope, thereby contributing to fundamental knowledge required for the development of new healthcare strategies
