UMass Center for Clinical and Translational Science Research Retreat

Parallel with the advancements in medical techniques and treatments, the microorganisms that we are constantly battling against are also evolving. Bacterial evolution is leading to an increasing number of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria. As the bacteria evolve, the antibiotics that are currently in use to combat bacterial diseases are becoming ineffective. FDA approval of new antibacterial agents decreased drastically over the past decade. Thus the design and synthesis of new classes of antibacterial agents, possibly with structures unrelated to the current antibiotics, as the next generation antibacterial agents is highly desirable. In the current work the antimicrobial effect of ...
