Ricardo Ribeiro, PhD student from the PhD program AEM - Applied

Environmental Microbiology delivered an oral presentation at the 7th Conference on Physiology of Yeast and Filamentous Fungi titled “Yeast response and tolerance to acetic acid: focus on the cell envelope” The work involves a collaboration between researchers from BSRG-iBB and BioISI. The meeting brought together researchers to exchange knowledge in the field of applied

physiology of yeasts and filamentous fungi, boosting the  understanding of these systems, envisaging their application in biotechnological, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The conference took place in Milan, Italy, on the 24th-27th June.

Sandra Pinto Delivers Oral Presentation at the 29th ECCMID

Sandra Pinto from BSIRG-IBB delivered an oral presentation at the 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases titled “Optimisation of confocal microscopy imaging techniques to study the diffusion-controlled action of a cationic antimicrobial peptide along Staphylococcus biofilms”. In this work the biofilm mass, metabolic activity and viability were quantified using conventional techniques, while fluorescence imaging methods, including a real-time calcein-release assay, were employed to investigate the kinetics of pepR activity at different biofilm depths. The authors showed that pepR has limited diffusion and activity on the inner layers of a staphylococcal biofilm, and results are consistent with almost irreversible binding of the peptide to the biofilm matrix. The work involves a collaboration between researchers from BSIRG-iBB, BSRG-iBB, IMM and Universitat Pompeu Fabra. The conference took place in Amsterdam, Holland, on the 13-16th April.
