Biophysical investigations into membrane-active peptides and proteins

Abstract:

The inexorable spread of antibiotic or antimicrobial resistance is a global problem, described by the UK Chief Medical Officer to be "as big a threat as terrorism". Due to uncontrolled, unnecessary overuse of antibiotics in medicine and agriculture, bacterial resistance has evolved to even the antibiotics of last resort.
