Pentagon agency tries to stop drug-resistant bacteria

Image
The rise of drug-resistant bacteria and other biological threats has pushed the Pentagon to seek help developing small molecules that can stop some of the world's most dangerous pathogens.

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency, which seeks ways to stop or limit the effects of weapons of mass destruction such as biological weapons, is exploring the availability of researchers who can find small organic molecule inhibitors that can either slow or kill the growing number of drug-resistant bacteria, including the 11 pathogens on the government's Tier 1 list.
