Vincent Rotello, Distinguished Professor and Goessmann Professor of Chemistry, will discuss “Nanomaterials for Fighting Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria” on a free webinar Thursday, April 26 from 2-3 p.m.
The webinar is hosted by the American Chemical Society. Organizers say the number of bacteria gaining resistance to traditional antibiotics is rapidly increasing. Rotello will discuss how nanomaterials provide an “outside the box” alternative that shows considerable promise against these rapidly emerging pathogens. This new area of research is perhaps the most promising strategy to averting the health crisis threatened by antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Participants will learn how antibiotic-resistant bacteria present one of the greatest threats to human health, how nanomaterials provide new weapons against bacteria that access paths not available to traditional therapeutics, and how nanomaterials provide potentially “resistance-free” therapeutics that can fight dispersed bacteria and biofilms.
