β-Lactamase-mediated resistance by Gram-negative bacteria is major threat to modern medicine. Annually, the cases of β-lactam resistant Gram-negatives are slightly over 100,000 and account for over 3,200 deaths.
Of these Gram-negatives, the Burkholderia cepacia complex is emerging as important group of drug-resistant pathogens and our understanding of these unique pathogens remains undeveloped.
The goal of our laboratory is to identify novel ways of overcoming β-lactamase-mediated resistance in B. cepacia complex and other Gram-negative pathogens.
