Provincial Investment to help Develop Library for Antibiotic Discovery at McMaster University
The Ontario government is investing $1 million to support the creation of a Canadian Compound Library for Antibiotic Discovery at McMaster University. This investment will help researchers discover and develop the next generation of antibiotics to help combat antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance means that a growing number of infections, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis and food-borne illnesses, are becoming harder to treat as the antibiotics used to treat them become less effective.
The provincial investment will support the creation of a Canadian Compound Library for Antibiotic Discovery at the David Braley Centre for Antibiotic Discovery at McMaster University. The research being undertaken will identify a set of rules and guidelines that can be adopted by researchers and the private sector to accelerate antibiotic drug discovery and development, create an antimicrobial chemical library and develop and disseminate online education modules to provide timely information on antibiotic advancements to the public, researchers and clinicians.
