University Distinguished Professor of Biology Kim Lewis is exploring alternative approaches to curing chronic Lyme disease using his expertise in bacterial cell persistence.
Northeastern biologists have developed a method for treating intractable chronic infections, which kill more than tens of thousands of Americans each year.
Three Northeastern spinoffs were highlighted in a new report from The Science Coalition as examples of how federally funded university research and the companies created from that work can boosts the U.S. economy.
In recent years, the notion that there is a single mechanism by which antibiotics wipe out bacteria has permeated the field of microbiology. Now, new research from professor Kim Lewis and his team questions that hypothesis.
