Researchers from the SFB 1027 found out how bacteria -on microscopic scales - adhere to rough surfaces. The team of Karin Jacobs and Markus Bischoff (both B2) revealed that the adhesion force between the microbe and the surface can be derived directly from a precise analysis of the composition of the nano-structured surface. This opens promising research avenues - also regarding the fight against so-called multiresistant bacteria, which are particularly dangerous in hospitals. The study was now published in the journal "Nanoscale", where it became one of the 40 most popular articles of 2019 (link to the list).
