Scientific Aims

This project aims to develop small-molecule inhibitors of bacterial conjugation, which is a complex mechanism in bacteria for exchanging DNA, and through which bacteria can acquire resistance to existing anti-microbial agents. Finding new ways to limit the transmission of anti-microbial resistance could lead to significant benefits for public health.

Funding

This project is funded by the Mirabelle+ Lorraine University of Excellence programme.
