Our arsenal to treat bacterial infections is rapidly diminishing as an increasing number of human bacterial pathogens are resistant to existing antimicrobials / antibiotics. To understand the genetic and biochemical basis of resistance and to develop new antimicrobials, I started a scientific program in 2012 titled 'Taskforce to study Resistance Emergence & Antimicrobial development Technology' (TREAT). This program comprises of collaborative laboratories around the world with varying expertise but only one goal, that is, to develop new antibiotics and to understand how bugs resist them.
Here, I will share publications relevant to antimicrobial resistance and new antimicrobials. I will also post results of our (TREAT) effort.
