Exploiting the methylerythritol phosphate pathway as a source of drug targets for novel anti-infectives

Project description

A training network for the development of novel anti-infective drugs

The discovery of specific anti-microbial compounds with a novel mode of action is necessary to tackle the emergence of drug resistance. The EU-funded MepAnti project is an interdisciplinary effort that aims to train the next generation of scientists in the discovery and optimisation of new drugs. It will offer training and cutting-edge research skills in structural biology, the design and synthesis of inhibitors as well as lead molecule-testing methodologies. The key objective is to address medically relevant pathogens such as the causative agents of malaria and tuberculosis through the development of selective inhibitors.
