New Bioactive Compounds

Within this section, research is being performed to discover multiple small molecules that are broad-spectrum inhibitors against multi-drug resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacterial pathogens. Various microorganisms will be metabolically engineered to overproduce the bioactive molecules discovered. 

More specific research topics include:

  • Discovery of novel natural products by co-culture technology
  • Identification and characterisation of novel products
  • Deciphering the mechanisms of action
  • Metabolic engineering of microorganisms for the efficient production of natural products discovered

The section is headed by Scientific Director, Professor Sang Yup Lee.
