Introduction to Bacterial Biofilm Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research

The focus of this course is to provide the participants with a basic understanding of bacterial biofilms and the health care problems related to infections involving bacterial biofilms and food environment. The participants will learn to describe and explain the basis of biofilms in infections, food and environment, and also to recognize relevant biofilm model system and interpret results.

Objectives

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Illustrate and examine problems caused by infections involving bacterial biofilms
  • Explain and analyze the consequences of biofilms in infections and food environment
  • Recognize and design relevant biofilm model system and interpret their results
  • Design and develop their own biofilm model including strategies for future research

Participants

Participants should have a good knowledge of microbiology and microbiology laboratory practice

Pre-requisites

Participants should have a good knowledge of microbiology and microbiology laboratory practice

KISR is a pioneering, independent, national institute of scientific excellence. KISR’s initial role was dedicated to developing three fields of national importance: petroleum, desert agriculture, and marine biology. Since then, KISR’s role and responsibilities have expanded greatly to include the advancement of national industry and the undertaking of studies to address key challenges, such as the preservation of the environment, sustainable management of Kuwait’s natural resources, responsible management of water and energy, and development of innovative methods of agriculture.

KISR’s approach to meeting challenges is distinguished by a culture of openness, a commitment to our clients, and an integrated, cross-disciplinary approach. KISR routinely embarks on strategic partnerships with other regional and international institutes, agencies, and academic bodies, allowing an exchange of knowledge and expertise. Today, KISR is home to over 580 researchers and engineers and over 100 laboratories, housed at 8 locations, with growth expected through the implementation of a new strategic plan. KISR conducts scientific research and performs technological consultations, often in partnership with other regional and international institutions, for governmental and industrial clients in Kuwait, the Gulf region, and the rest of the world.
