Leading innovation in drug research

Leading innovation in drug research The groundbreaking discovery of teixobactin, an antibiotic that kills pathogens without resistance, is bound to change the future of modern medicine. And Northeastern’s leadership in drug discovery and delivery research doesn’t end there.

Groundbreaking Northeastern research sweeps the globe

North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Dis­tin­guished Pro­fessor Kim Lewis and his team’s pio­neering research pre­senting a new antibi­otic that kills pathogens without encoun­tering any detectable resis­tance has cap­tured head­lines world­wide and drawn wide­spread praise from the sci­en­tific community.

Lewis and his team’s impressive work dovetails with Northeastern’s focus on use-inspired research that solves global challenges, particularly in health, security, and sustainability. It also builds upon the university’s leading research in the areas of drug discovery and delivery. Here are some Northeastern faculty who are breaking new ground in those areas.
