Summary In recent years, society has been increasingly concerned with bacteria that are no longer susceptible to commercial antibiotics. Faced with a lack of tools, medical practitioners today are forced to prescribe medicines that, although effective, cause as much harm to the patient as the principal infection. The purpose of this research project is to develop novel antibacterials that remain potent against bacterial infections without being toxic to the patient.
