About the Project
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a growing problem in medicine as it could lead to common
infections causing serious illness or even death. Understanding the emergent properties of living
systems at a molecular level will play an important role in tackling this problem, and “physics”
approaches are likely to be critical. In this project we will develop the application of a new, state-of-
the-art nano-IR instrument just purchased in Sheffield to map for the first time how cell wall
chemistry and mechanics change during bacterial growth and how this is influenced by AMR, linking
cell wall architecture 1 , cell physiology and resistance.
