Applied Microbiology

Main research is focused on the use of visible light, alone or combined with dyes, to control the growth of microbial pathogens. This approach offer potential applications in clinical, enviromental and industrial fields. One focus is the evaluation of the activity of photosensitizers belonging to different family compounds on microbial biofilms. A second focus is the bacterial response to photo-oxidative stress induced by light.
