Research

The research group works on the characterization of mechanisms used by pathogenic bacteria to resist against the antimicrobial action, to increase their virulence or to be protected from environmental pressures and from the action of the host immune system.

Research Lines

The research lines are focused on:

  • Epidemiology of the antimicrobial resistance: to know the antimicrobial resistance levels among different bacteria from clinical, animal, food and environmental origin (such as Pseudomonas, Streptococcus, Enterobacteriaceae, among others).
  • Molecular basis of the antimicrobial resistance: to determine the bacterial mechanisms used to acquire, develop and disseminate their resistance.
  • Mechanisms of pathogenicity and biofilm production: to study the virulence factors, the capacity of biofilm formation, and the possible resistance-virulence association among pathogenic bacteria (human health, animal health, food and environment).
  • Microbial molecular epidemiology: to identify the bacterial clonal populations, and to analyse the circulating genetic lines among different ecological niches and in comparison to international high risk clones.
  • Pathogen-host interaction: to analyse the biological factors involved in the relationship between certain pathogens and the host immune system.
  • New therapeutic targets and new antimicrobial compounds: to search and to study the susceptibility of new molecules with antimicrobial or antibiofilm activity or with biotechnology application

Nowadays, the research group works mainly on the following projects:

  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the main responsible of hospital infections and causes severe complications in chronic respiratory diseases (such as cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)). This pathogen represents a significant health problem in the hospital environment, due to its great resistance to antimicrobials and antiseptics, and the presence of multiple virulence factors; as well as its great metabolic versatility and ubiquity. P. aeruginosa uses its big arsenal of pathogenicity factors to attack host defenses. This problem is not limited to the hospital environment, but also it requires a global analysis among different ecological niches (community, animal, food and environment).
    • Objectives: To deepen the knowledge of origin-antimicrobial resistance-pathogenicity-host relationship of P. aeruginosa strains isolated from clinical and non-clinical origin (healthy individuals and animals, food and environment); as well as to identify new antimicrobials and new therapeutic targets to facilitate the control and eradication of P. aeruginosa.
  • Streptococcus, including not only Streptococcus agalactiae isolates recovered from pregnant or different infection samples, but also emergent pathogenic Streptococcus (Streptococcus bovis group, S. dysgalactiae…). Without prevention measures, S. agalactiae is the main cause of bacterial vaginal infection among pregnant and later perinatal (meningitis and sepsis) through vertical transmission from the mother to the baby. In recent years, zoonotic microorganisms, such as S. suis, S. dysgalactiae and S. canis are emerging as human pathogens that could cause clinical problems in the future.
    • Objectives: To analyse the mechanisms of antimicrobial and heavy metals resistance, the mechanisms of virulence and the molecular typing of the isolates. To study the mobile genetic elements involved in the resistance and pathogenicity dissemination and transference.
  • Natural substances or compounds with antimicrobial or antibiofilm activity against pathogenic bacteria of clinical, food or veterinary interest. Nowadays, the high increase and dissemination of the bacterial antimicrobial resistance is, without a doubt, one of the main problems of public and animal health worldwide. The available antimicrobials are losing their effect, thus new alternatives to classical antibiotics, new therapeutic interventions or new treatments are required to prevent the growth and adaptation of pathogenic bacteria in different environments.
    • Objectives: To search new chemical compounds, nanoparticles, peptides or bacteriocins, but also natural products obtained from bacteria, fungi, plants, animals or algae with antimicrobial or antibiofilm activity.

Objectives

  • To know the mechanisms involved in: the antimicrobial resistance and its transference; the dissemination of resistant pathogenic bacteria among different ecological niches; and the development of possible strategies to control bacteria.
  • To deepen in the complex relationship among epidemic, pathogenicity, antimicrobial resistance and host immune system, with the objective of identifying new therapeutic targets to control and eradicate different pathogens in human health, animal health, food or environment.
  • To find new substances or compounds with antimicrobial or antibiofilm activity, or with biotechnological application.
  • To support different research groups, hospitals or enterprises in works such as bacterial isolations, identifications and quantifications; as well as with the analysis of the antimicrobial activity of different compounds and products.
  • Training in Microbiology and Molecular Biology of researchers, specialists, students…
