The Project “Molecular Basis of Antibiotic Translocation ” – funded by the Marie Sklodowska Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) - aims at investigating the molecular and cellular mechanism at the basis of the influx and efflux processes. It searches for solutions to increase antibiotic concentration inside bacteria .

The Translocation project has developed long term collaborations and links between the involved teams, improving research and training standards.

The ITN project ” Molecular Basis of Antibiotic Translocation ” has received funding from the  European Union’s Seventh Framework Program for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no. 607694.

Within the MSCA ITN project  we trained  12 young Fellows  with a different scientific background to go beyond the classical faculty border. Bridging nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, computer modeling, pharmacology and microbiology together we have facilitated the transfer of expertise acquired within the network in both academia and industry.
