The thesis is on novel antibacterial drug discovery (http://youtu.be/NRMWOGgeysM). Using structure-based and fragment-based drug discovery approach, we have identified small-molecule histidine-kinase inhibitors with antibacterial effect against multi-drug resistant strains, including clinical isolates of multi-drug resistant bacteria such as MRSA. Furthermore, we have shown broadening of the antibacterial spectrum and lowering the toxicity of the histidine-kinase inhibitors using nanoparticles. The results open up exciting possibilities for development of novel antibacterial(nano)medicines.
