Project

Development of a comprehensive platform for targeting redox homeostasis in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB), remains a major public health hazard throughout the world and was responsible for more than 1.7 million deaths in 2016.The prevalence of drug resistance in Mtb calls for the legitimization of new and highly specific drug targets, focusing on unique pathways.The project encompasses a multidisciplinary approach to disturb the redox homeostasis in Mtb, in an effort to uncover new drug leads for fighting this deadly infection.
