U of G Research on ‘Sticky’ Proteins Points to New Treatments to Fight Antimicrobial Resistance

Posted on Thursday, March 16th, 2023

Improved treatments for infections caused by often-deadly antibiotic-resistant bacteria may result from a recent discovery by University of Guelph microbiologists. 

By studying how methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonizes and infects human hosts, the researchers have found a potential drug target to strengthen existing treatments to overcome antimicrobial resistance (AMR).  

Their paper appears online this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of SciencesREAD MORE
