Antibiotic resistance: a physicist’s view

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The problem of antibiotic resistance poses challenges across many disciplines. One such challenge is to understand the fundamental science of how antibiotics work, and how resistance to them can emerge. This is an area where physicists can make important contributions. Here, we highlight cases where this is already happening, and suggest directions for further physics involvement in antimicrobial research.
