uk: Research Fellow [100% | Duties: In the modern history, the first antimicrobial textile material was developed by Lister in 1867. Over the last few years there has been increased interest in antimicrobial finishes to protect the textile user against pathogenic causing microorganisms. Recent studies have shown that natural products derived from marine sources provide novel leads against bacterial, fungal and viral diseases, and in the search for new " Drugs from the Sea" , chemists have isolated a diverse array of bioactive compounds with novel structures from the rich marine sources. The project aims to isolate and characterise antimicrobial secondary metabolites from marine endophytic fungi for imparting antimicrobial properties to textile fabric.
