Dr Corrado Nai

I’m active as freelance scientific writer, editor and communicator, e.g. as blogger for FEMS (the Federation of European Microbiological Societies) or scientific speaker (science slams). Some of my writings and scientific contributions appeared on the Journal of Biological Chemistry, Fungal Genetics and Biology, Fungal Biology and Biotechnology, Science and the Oxford University Press blog. As a fully proficient, yet non-native English speaker I understand your struggles with the language and I am happy to help.

AMR three ways: healthcare crisis, major concepts and the relevance of biofilms

Worldwide, infections are resuming their role as highly effective killing diseases, as current treatments are failing to respond to the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In this minireview, the impact of AMR in healthcare systems and the major bacteria behind it are highlighted. Ecological aspects of AMR evolution and the complexity of its molecular mechanisms are explained. Major concepts, such as intrinsic, acquired and adaptive resistance, as well as tolerance and heteroresistance, are also clarified. More importantly, the problematic of biofilms and their role in AMR, namely their main resistance and tolerance mechanisms, are elucidated. Finally, some of the most promising anti-biofilm strategies being investigated are reviewed.
