Brown Lab researchers are searching for the Achilles heels of drug-resistant superbugs. To this end they are using tools of chemical biology and molecular genetics to probe the complex biology that underlies bacterial survival strategies. The goal of these studies is to contribute to fresh directions for new antibacterial therapeutics.
