Offer description

The term “persister” indicates bacterial forms that are not resistant to traditional antibacterial drugs directed towards cells actively engaged in metabolic functions, but tolerant towards them. These are mostly “dormant” forms which, as soon as the antibiotic treatment ends or the host’s immune defenses drop, are reactivated causing recurrence or chronicization of the infection.

The aim of this line of research is to identify the regulatory loops of dormancy to search for new antimicrobial molecules to counteract persistent pathogens. Particular attention will be paid to the relationship between stringent response and bacterial dormancy.
