  2. Aminoglycosides with reduced ototoxicity via miRNA targeting

    SBC: NUBAD, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    PROJECT SUMMARYAminoglycosides are one of the cheapest and well-known antibiotics in clinical use for over 70 years, but one of the major limitations in their use is their ototoxicity. We are developing fast and low cost methods to develop aminoglycosides with anti- ribosomal activities and reduced toxicity. In this project, we will identify novel aminoglycoside antibacterials, that show reduced o ...
