The rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs poses a serious public health threat. In response, scientists and clinicians are exploring alternative ways to cure bacterial infections that are untreatable by antibiotics. One approach is to use bacteria-killing viruses – also known as bacteriophage, or phage.
Thanks to his research into motor skills and the science of movement, School of Biological Sciences Professor T. Richard Nichols is named a honorary member of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Drexel University and Georgia Institute of Technology researchers have discovered how the Rad52 protein is a crucial player in RNA-dependent DNA repair. The results of their study, published June 8 in the journal Molecular Cell, uncover a surprising function of the homologous recombination protein Rad52. They also may help to identify new therapeutic targets for cancer treatment.
