A team led by University Distinguished Professor of Biology Kim Lewis received a five-year, $9 million grant from the National Institute of Health’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to launch a novel platform for developing antibiotics that kill pathogens without encountering resistance.
Groundbreaking scientific research published earlier this year by Northeastern researchers and their colleagues topped the list of the 100 scientific articles receiving the most media buzz and online attention in 2015, according to the London-based company Altmetric.
Northeastern University Distinguished Professor Kim Lewis and his team’s pioneering research presenting a new antibiotic that kills pathogens without encountering any detectable resistance has captured headlines worldwide and drawn widespread praise from the scientific community.
News outlets worldwide and the scientific community have taken notice of new breakthrough research from Northeastern and collaborators in the U.S. and Europe that presents a new antibiotic that eliminates pathogens without encountering any detectable resistance.
The discovery of this novel compound challenges long-held scientific beliefs and holds great promise for treating an array of menacing infections, says Northeastern University Distinguished Professor Kim Lewis.
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 collaboration with the J. Craig Ventor Institute, biology professor Slava Epstein will study the roles of microbial species in model bacterial communities of Northern Greenland.
Biology professor Slava Epstein proposes a new theory to explain why some bacteria are so hard to grow in the lab.
