Module 2: Properties of biofilms and chronic infections
Module 3: Bacteria and biofilms as natural inhabitants of our body
Module 4: Bacteria and biofilms in chronic infections
Module 5: Diagnosis and treatment of chronic infections
Module 6: The evolutionary perspectives of biofilms
This course will give you an introduction to bacteria and chronic infections. Leading experts in the field will make you familiar with the fundamental concepts of microbiology and bacteriology such as single cell bacteria, biofilm formation, and acute and chronic infections.
