Bacteriocins in combating antibiotic resistance
Professor Dzung B. Diep,
Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), Ås
Biosketch: “I am a molecular microbiologist and leader of the research group Laboratory of Microbial Gene Technology (LMG). We have a keen interest in bacteriocin research, both fundamental and applied. This includes bacteriocin screeening, purification, functional genetics, quorum sensing/gene regulation, receptor identification and mode of action studies. Our recent focus is to understand how bacteriocins interact with their receptors on target cells and how these interactions eventually lead to destruction of target cells. Knowledge from these studies is important to develop bacteriocins into safe and efficient applications, both as food preservatives and as novel drugs. We have an increasing interest in applied research, especially to develop bacteriocins into drugs to fight antibiotic resistant pathogens”.
