#Bacteria beware: @umsop student Alecia Dent is resilient, too. Under the guidance of Angela Wilks, PhD, professor and the Isaac E. Emerson chair in chemical and biological discovery in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Alecia is investigating a drug-resistant bacterial pathogen that causes infections in #immunocompromised patients. The goal? Develop novel drugs that can target a bacteria’s ability to cause infection – before it becomes resistant to antibiotics.
