Carla C. C. R. de Carvalho
Principal Investigator

Research Activities
- Mechanisms of resistance and adaptation of bacterial cells to stress. Application of these mechanisms to improve biocatalysis, biotransformation, and bioremediation processes.
- Bioprocess development using marine bacteria. Culturomics approach to isolate and cultivate marine bacteria.
- Application of lipidomics to study bacterial persistence, adhesion and biofilm formation.
- Development of fluorescence microscopy and image analysis techniques to monitor biological processes.
