As part of the seminar series "HIPS-DZIF Translational Drug Research" Dr. Heinz Moser (Executive Director, Global Discovery Chemistry Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research) will give a presentation entitled
“Where will new antibiotics come from? Some reflections”.
Over the past decades, the scientific community struggled to identify novel and safe antibiotics, especially against emerging, multi-drug resistant Gram-negative pathogens. This talk will focus on our current understanding of the chemical property space for antibiotics with activity against Gram-negative bacteria and outline possible opportunities of changes necessary to improve our success. While the problem is complex and multi-parameter driven, the focus here will be on property space and the chemical matter used in our screening efforts to identify novel and therapeutically useful antibiotics.
