Antimicrobial Gold Nanoclusters Eradicate Escherichia coli Biofilms

Visiting Scholar, Dr Zhixin Cao and Research Scientist Dr Laurent Bekale led work to show novel gold nanoclusters created in the Santa Maria lab were able to eradicate E Coli biofilms and were non toxic following oral administration. This has potential impact for E Coli related GIT diseases and important general safety implications for the potential broader application of gold nanoclusters delivered orally.
