Description

Bacteria can develop resistance to antibiotics, creating a need for current and future scientists to develop new types on antibiotics. Kateryna discusses her research on proteins that catalyze a carbon-chlorine bond-forming reaction, and she describes how taking advantage of chlorine’s electronegativity may lead to new medications to fight bacteria and the other “bugs” that make us sick.Search
