Short description

This project is part of the Marie Curie ITN project “CycloN Hit” aimed at developing nanocarriers for the delivery of antimicrobial agents to fight resistance mechanisms. Our long term goal in this project is to investigate mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance and evaluate efficacy of emerging delivery agents using noninvasive advanced imaging techniques
