Antibiotic research featured by the NHMRC

4 October 2017:

With only two new antibiotic classes being discovered and developed in the last 50 years, Professor Andrew Abell, CNBP Chief Investigator and his team at the University of Adelaide have been featured on the NHMRC website as one of the ‘ten best’ research stories of the year.

Prof Abell and team are going back to the fundamentals of chemical science in an attempt to develop a new class of antibiotics.

Motivated by a desire to understand the molecular basis of key biological processes, Professor Abell is exploring small molecules that selectively bind to bacterial proteins, as a potential mechanism for limiting bacterial survival.
