Microscopic Peptide Polymers Kill Drug Resistant Bacteria Without Any Drugs

Drug resistant bacteria is showing its face around the world and causing worry that the golden age of antibiotics is coming to a close. At the University of Melbourne in Australia researchers have been working on something called structurally nanoengineered antimicrobial peptide polymers (SNAPPs), tiny microscopic devices that are able to damage bacterial walls without using … Continue reading Microscopic Peptide Polymers Kill Drug Resistant Bacteria Without Any Drugs
