Make MR more relevant

Drug Discovery Research
 

NMR is a powerful tool in drug discovery. NMR provides many advantages over other methods, such as the ability to directly observe chemical compounds and target biomolecules, and to be used for ligand-based and protein-based approaches

The Biomedical Solid-State NMR group at Utrecht University uses advanced solid-state NMR methods to study antibiotics in medically relevant conditions.

Group Leader Dr. Markus Weingarth gives an insight about their research
It is about understanding how exactly an antibiotic binds a specific target in the bacterial cell membrane. The understanding of how antibiotics target a specific bacterial lipid gives crucial information for how to improve these antibiotics and to break bacterial resistance in order to make better drugs that cure people.
