About Wrocław Biofilm Symposium


Biofilm is an extracellular matrix consisting of proteins and polysaccharides that protects bacteria within from chemical and physical stress. Formed on biotic and abiotic surfaces, biofilm communities may function as infection agents or, due to the excessive growth, limit the functionality of medical or industrial equipment.

The goal of the Wrocław Biofilm Symposium is to connect scientists from different fields interested in various aspects of the biofilm-related research. The main topic of this meeting is especially the amyloid origin of biofilms and inhibition of the biofilm development.



Venue: Faculty of Biotechnology, University of Wrocław

The Wrocław Biofilm Symposium takes place at the Faculty of Biotechnology of University of Wrocław. The address is Fryderyka Joliot-Curie 14a 50-383 Wrocław. The conference is located in the Room 1.05.

The Faculty of Biotechnology at University of Wrocław is one of the oldest and best biotechnology units in Poland. In 2013, the Faculty received the prestigious ministerial category A+ for its high level of research. It is also the leader of the consortium Wroclaw Centre for Biotechnology, which in 2014 was granted the status of the Leading National Research Centre, thereby gaining access to extensive funding until 2018. The Faculty employees conduct basic and applied research, in cooperation with industrial partners and other research centres, in the field of biotechnology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, microbiology, immunology, virology, cell biology and plant physiology. Our areas of expertise are especially related to protein engineering, molecular photosynthesis mechanisms, liposome technologies, cancer growth mechanisms, agricultural biotechnology and DNA evolution. The Faculty is also the seat of the editorial staff of an international journal Cellular and Molecular Biology Letters .
