Metaproteomics analysis of the distal intestional microbiotica of cystic fibrosis patients.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme FWO

The intestinal microbiota play an important role in health and disease of humans. Cystic fibrosis patients suffer from lung infections that require multiple antimicrobial therapies. In addition, their intestinal physiology and food digestion are severely disturbed. The present project will use...

Microstructural and sensorial effects of the functional components milk fat globule membrane-fragments and natural antioxidants in fermented milk products.

Prof. Dr. Geert Huys BOF-UGent

The overall aim of this project is to obtain a more profound insight in the interactions between functional components, namely the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) fragments and the natural antioxidants (AOX), and the bacterial starter and probiotic cultures in model systems of...

Mining of (micro)biological profiles: going beyond cluster analysis.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme Baekeland Fonds

The scientific objectives of this research project are to develop new methods for the detection of patterns and/or relationships within or between modern typing techniques, trying to converge the (biologically) most relevant information from each technique, while maintaining as long as...

Mining the parvome of Burkholderia bacteria for novel anti-infective compounds

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme FWO

 The present research project will explore the group of Burkholderia bacteria as a potential source of new antimicrobial compounds. The advantage of this approach is the dual focus on both antibacterial and anti-quorum sensing...

Molecular detection of multidrug resistance in M. tuberculosis from slides and filter paper cards in middle and low-income countries

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme Damien Foundation

No description.

Molecular dissection of integrons and gene cassettes involved in the evolution and distribution of multiple antimicrobial resistance genes in Gram-negative opportunistic bacteria.

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme FWO

Molecular ecological studies demonstrated that antimicrobial resistance is not confined to the nosocomial environment and that a range of aquatic and terrestrial niches and the bacteria therein, represent important reservoirs for resistance genes, which may be localized on mobile genetic...

National Reference Center (NRC) for Human Microbiology: Burkholderia cepacia complex

Prof. Dr. Peter Vandamme WIV

Since January 2011 a National Reference Center, consisting of the Department of Microbiology and Hospital Hygiene, UZ-Brussel, and the LM-UGent Laboratory for Microbiology,  is charged with the surveillance of respiratory infections caused by non-fermenting Gram-negative bacilli in Belgian CF...
