Bacterial Resistance Reversal

Bacterial resistance against antibiotics has, in recent years, become a huge health problem worldwide. Currently, antibiotic development aims to outpace evolution by creating stronger drugs faster than bacteria can adapt to them. In this project, we explore alternative lanes to counter this resistance, namely by inhibiting bacterial resistance mechanisms. Thus, we present here a threefold study centred on antibiotic action mechanisms, the defense mechanisms developed by bacteria, and the development of adjuvants to disable these defense mechanisms in order to restore antibiotic efficiency.
