Hybrid Antibiotic Created With Molecular ‘Rope’ Kills Resistant Bacteria
A team of scientists from the University of Manitoba created a hybrid antibiotic by tying together two different antibiotics with a molecular “rope.”
Disassembling bacteria’s protective walls
A multidisciplinary team of GlycoNet investigators is making strides towards taking down drug-resistant bacteria By Alexandria Daum A bacterial or fungal infection is difficult enough to treat, but when these infections form protective biofilms, it makes them even more stubborn. Now, the solution being explored by GlycoNet scientists is to prevent the biofilm from forming […]
