Structural Biology

Researchers in this theme are furthering our understanding of the molecular structures of microbial macromolecules and how these affect antimicrobial resistance (AMR). It includes the development of biosensors to determine which micro-organism is infecting a patient, investigating how bacteria sense the presence of antibiotics, examining which molecules are involved in AMR, identifying enzymes that could be new targets for antibiotics and using living cells to manufacture antimicrobial compounds.
