ALERT PhD network on novel antimicrobials and delivery strategies
In the 21st century, the overuse of antibiotics led to the emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria.
Cofunded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the University of Groningen and University Medical Center Groningen established the local training network ALERT to address this challenge.
From 2017 to 2021, nineteen excellent young researchers conducted cutting-edge research projects in the field of antimicrobials, developing novel antimicrobial drug candidates by chemical, biotechnological and nanotechnological synthesis and the subsequent testing of promising candidates in vivo.
