PhD candidate / guest
- X. Ouyang MSc
I am a PhD student from the Institute of Biology Leiden (IBL). Our research group is located at the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht. The aim of my research is to look for novel antibiotics against Gram-positive bacteria from the source of fungi.
Antibiotic resistance is a major threat to human and animal health. To combat emerging multi-resistant bacteria, new antibiotics with novel working mechanisms are needed. One of the bottlenecks to find such novel antibiotics is the time-consuming analysis of their mode of action. The aim of this project is to identify antibiotics with novel modes of action.
