Innvative approaches to identification of metabolic Targets for antimicrobials

Project description

Novel targets to reverse antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial resistance is a growing medical challenge, hampering the effectiveness of existing drugs and threatening the lives of patients. Therefore, there is a pressing need for compounds that re-sensitise drug-resistant bacteria to existing antimicrobials. To address this problem, the EU-funded INNOTARGETS project will train early-stage researchers in the identification of novel metabolic drug targets in pathogenic bacteria. The project comes as a collaboration between academia and industry and will guide researchers to use innovative approaches to achieve their scientific goals. Research activities will focus on metabolic enzymes necessary or redundant for infection as well as others responsible for antimicrobial resistance. The work will create new research opportunities for tackling antimicrobial resistance.
