Researchers: Prof Matthew Cooper (Principal investigator)

Brief description Infectious disease is a leading cause of death, and the emergence of "superbugs" in the community and hospitals is of grave concern. We are developing new, powerful antibiotics that can kill superbugs using ‘forgotten’ drugs from the 1970s. These will combat bacteria that cause pneumonia, skin and urinary track infections; diseases that cause death and discomfort for thousands of Australians today. We will also develop methods to directly remove bacteria from blood infections.
