Dr. Sourav Maity, research scientist in the Molecular Biophysics group, was awarded an NWO XS grant. Sourav will conduct molecular-level screening of the killing mechanism of membrane-active antibiotics.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the highest concerns in modern health care. While potential new drugs are reported regularly, only a few reach the clinical trial state after years of preclinical testing. Therefore, increasing the preclinical screening efficiency and designing more efficient drugs are of utmost importance to combat AMR. One way to deal with this is to understand the fundamental mode of action of these potential drugs at the molecular level. In the present proposal, I will build a methodology that will provide such information and help pharmaceutical research in screening and designing more efficient drugs.
