Brief description We have become so accustomed to treating bacterial infections with antibiotics that it is hard to imagine life without them. However, the emergence of drug-resistance is creating a global health care crisis. Recently, there has not been enough attention paid to replacing old antibiotics with new products to combat drug resistance. Our team is addressing this challenge. We have discovered a new class of antibiotic that is unlike any other drug in clinical use.
