Professor Miguel Cámara, Professor of Molecular Microbiology, University of Nottingham

Miguel Cámara is Professor of Molecular Microbiology at the University of Nottingham and Co-Director of the National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC) working with academic and industrial partners on different areas of biofilm research and innovation. He has more than 30 years of expertise in quorum sensing-mediated bacterial cell-cell signalling mechanisms. He has led several international drug discovery programs aiming at reducing the impact of antimicrobial resistance through novel anti-virulence target discovery and the design of inhibitors against them.

Some of his research interests include: (i) identification of novel biomarkers of infection for the development of point of care diagnostics (ii) molecular mechanisms of biofilm development and adaptation to different environments; (iv) identification of novel drugs which can prevent biofilm formation or manage established biofilms through either killing or sensitising them to the action of existing antimicrobials; (v) dissecting mechanisms of interaction between biofilms and the human host.
