16/09/2020 – AI3SD Online Seminar Series: Supramolecular Antimicrobials – the next target for AI/Machine Learning? – Dr Jennifer Hiscock

Abstract: Since the 1980’s the development of novel antibiotics has dramatically reduced. This, combined with the ever-increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistance in bacteria, means that some bacterial strains have now been identified that are resistant to treatment with all known classes of antibiotic currently available. Supramolecular Self-associating Amphiphiles (SSAs) are ...
