Although LUSARA traces its origins to the field of zoology, we are now devoted to doing research in microbiology and molecular biology.

We are especially interested in bacterial resistance to antibiotics. We are also investigating aspects of bacterial responses to oxidative stress. In addition, we collaborate on clinical trials for new antimicrobial drugs.

Although our proyects overlap extensively, we have loosely classified them into the following categories:

Antibiotic resistance

Oxidative stress

New antimicrobial agents
