Young researchers take antibiotic resistance personally

Historically, drugs for infection and disease have been developed from tests in large populations of similar patients. Scientific advances, particularly in the field of genetics, have ushered in a new era of personalised medicine in which genes, proteins and even parts of proteins can be used to create targeted therapeutics. Personalised antibiotic therapy is an area where such methods can be used to increase the efficacy of antibiotic therapy while combating the dangerous rise of antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. TIPAT is training young researchers in the techniques required to strategically evaluate drug-pathogen-host interactions for effective personalised antibiotic therapy. A fresh look at what is becoming a common problem may be just what the doctor ordered.
