Investigative Work in Antibiotic Treatment of Biofilms Using New Reactor Models

Semester: Spring 2024

Presentation description

This presentation seeks to compare three bacterial inhibitory concentration models - the MIC assay, CDC Biofilm reactor, and a new model developed in the Bone and Biofilm lab as well as explore the scope of the problem with biofilm. Understanding the importance of biofilm's role in antibiotic treatment is vital because preventing antibiotic resistance requires overcoming the natural defenses of biofilm. For this reason, biofilm-related infections are a large burden on healthcare system.
