REVIVE Webinar Series

Converting Gram-positive-only compounds into broad-spectrum antibiotics

Speaker: Paul Hergenrother, Kenneth L. Rinehart Endowed Chair in Natural Products Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and the Institute for Genomic Biology, University of Illinois, US

In this webinar, Paul will detail his research group’s efforts to understand compound accumulation in the Gram-negative ESKAPE pathogens. Emphasis will be placed on the practicality, actionability, and translatability of this information, specifically, the use of accumulation rules to convert high-value Gram-positive-only compounds into antibiotics with activity against key Gram-negative pathogens.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
