The number of bacteria that are gaining resistance to traditional antibiotics is rapidly increasing. Join Vince Rotello of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst for a look at how nanomaterials provide an ‘outside the box’ alternative that shows considerable promise against these rapidly emerging pathogens. This new area of research is perhaps the most promising strategy to averting the health crisis threatened by antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

What You Will Learn

  • Antibiotic-resistant bacteria present one of the greatest threats to human health
  • Nanomaterials provide new weapons against bacteria that access paths that are not available to traditional therapeutics.
  • Nanomaterials provide potentially ‘resistance-free’ therapeutics that can fight dispersed bacteria and biofilms
