Utrecht University’s professor Frank van Kuppeveld has received an ERC Advanced Grant for research into the life cycle of enteroviruses. These common pathogens have a major impact on society, among them are poliovirus, coxsackievirus and rhinovirus.
Scientists at Utrecht University have discovered a new mechanism of how antibiotics kill bacteria. The antibiotic teixobactin uses a dual molecular strategy: it blocks the bacterial cell wall synthesis and destructs the cell membrane, the researchers write in the scientific journal Nature. The new insights could enable the design of powerful antibiotics against which bacteria do not readily develop resistance.
