Future antibiotics

Future antibiotics

To discover and optimize new antibiotics

Project overview

Project lead: Ruth Brenk
Institution: University of Bergen

Research group

By combining methdos from chemistry, biology and informatics, the researchs aim to look for antibiotics that target bacterial “riboswitches”. The team will describe and predict how small molecules can interact with these structures.

Innovation: The researchers look for small molecules that can be further developed into novel antibiotics.

The project is financed by the Norwegian Research Councils FRIMEDBIO program.
