Promotor(s): prof. H.J. Busscher, prof. H.C. van der Mei
Faculty: Medical Sciences
Biofilms play an important role in medically-related fields; they are a major cause of many clinical infections. In this is studied how morphological and species composition, biofilm architecture, hydrodynamic conditions during growth, slime composition and quorum sensing influence biofilm mechanical properties. Based on the findings, suggestions are made for potential treatments and future work in the area of medical biofilm mechanics.
