Biography

He is currently serving as research associate at the Institute of biology and ecology, University of Kargujevac, Serbia.The sensitivity of microbiological biofilm to the action of natural bioactive substances in vitro belongs to the field Biology, narrow area Microbiology. The subject of research is strains of microorganisms, among which are those who have the ability to form biofilm, and their sensitivity to natural substances and secondary plant metabolites has been studied. The occurrence of reduced susceptibility and resistance of bacteria to commercial antibiotics initiates numerous studies of potentially new antibacterial substances and the development of methods for more effective control of bacterial infections. Biofilm is an inevitable phenomenon in such strains as one of the important factors of resistance to external influences.
