Newsletter NRP 72 – 12 July 2018
Persistent bacteria could aggravate the problem
Antibiotic resistance is one reason why antibiotic treatment sometimes fails, another reason is antibiotic persistence. New insights into this phenomenon were presented at the EMBO Workshop "Bacterial Persistance and Antimicrobial Therapy" in Ascona on 10 - 14 June 2018. Among the participants were biological physicist Nathalie Q. Balaban and microbiologist Sophie Helaine. In an interview, they talk about the causes and implications of persistence and possible links to antibiotic resistance.
Hospitals and researchers uncover data treasure by collaborating
Whether we talk about personalised medicine or better monitoring of antibiotic resistance: medical institutions and researchers need to work together more closely to make the most of the available data and to offer better help to patients. The laboratory of the University Hospital Basel is currently involved in two projects working towards data networks enabling such collaboration.
Evaluation study of NRP 72
A team from the University of Bern is investigating how interdisciplinary collaboration works in NRP 72 and how it could be strengthened.
Programme conference 2018: intensified internal dialogue
At the second programme conference of NRP 72, researchers were able to share ideas with each other, as well as with representatives of the Confederation and Innosuisse.
