The European-Funded Nomorfilm Project Closes a First Cycle

The numerous results obtained after a five-year funding pave the way for other ambitious projects

17 February 2020

After almost five years screening marine microalgae to identify new molecules with antibacterial activity, the European project Nomorfilm comes to an end. “The results from this first cycle are very promising,” explains Sara Soto, ISGlobal researcher and project coordinator. “We have patented four compounds with antibacterial and antibiofilm activity. We have developed a new coating method using solid-like gels (or xerogels) as antibiotic carriers and we have succesfully tested them in animal models. We also developed a prototype of prosthetic device with rapid release of antibiotic, capable of eliminating bone infections in pigs.”
