LBDiM

The Laboratory of Biofilms & Microbial Diversity (LBDiM) is a research group annexed to the Laboratory of
Peptides and Proteolytic Enzymes (Center of Biotehcnology/UFRGS). Coordinated by Dr. Alexandre José Macedo, LBDiM is part of the Research and Formation Network in Surface Biofuncionalization (Rede NANOBIOTEC-Brasil), formed by research groups from all the country and financed by CAPES.

Research lines– Search for novel bioactive compounds, from several sources, for the modulation of pathogenic biofilm formation;

– Surface modification aiming on the inhibition of biofilm formation;

– Evaluation of microorganism interaction over ecologically-relevant and recalcitrant substrates;

– Study of the microbial diversity from peculiar environments for, among other objectives, application in biotechnological and industrial processes.

People

The Laboratory of Biofilms & Microbial Diversity (LBDiM) is a multidisciplinar group, formed by researchers with different formations, such as chemists, veterinarians, pharmacists, biologists and biomedical scientists.

Welcome to the Laboratory of Biofilms & Microbial Diversity website
LBDiM had its beginning in 2008, thanks to Dr. Carlos Termignoni, coordinator of the Laboratory of Peptides and Proteolytic Enzymes (Center of Biotechnology/UFRGS), who invited Dr. Alexandre José Macedo to join his group as Associate Researcher. The laboratory cooperates intensively in several projects with research groups from Brazil and other countries, and is also part of the Research and Formation Network in Surface Biofuncionalization (Rede NANOBIOTEC-Brasil).

This page is currently under construction. Please contact Dr. Alexandre José Macedo for further questions.
