The search for new antibiotics

02 October 2013

Professor Oscar Kuipers recently received a € 1 million grant from the EU to study synthetic peptides. A European consortium that Kuipers is involved in wants to use new peptides in developing antibiotics. Kuipers wants to adapt the peptides so that they will be broken down less quickly and are able to have new antimicrobial properties. He is collaborating closely with a Basel branch of the renowned ETH Zurich institute.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
