Russian Researchers Find Way to Combat Resistance to Antibiotics in Diseases

Researchers from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have proposed blocking bacterial antibiotic resistance by using small proteins called peptide inhibits (blocking agents). Together with the Kurchatov Institute National Research Center, researchers at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have created a peptide which is harmless to humans and capable of inhibiting the key catalyst of the SOS-response in bacteria.

Collaborations of research teams from both countries are invited to submit joint proposals.

All proposals will be reviewed by both organisations separately. The results of the review process will be shared between the agencies. Support will be granted for those proposals where both DFG and RSF recommend funding.

Earlier this year an ambitious Presidential research funding program was announced in Russia. Around $10 billion in additional budget are expected to be made available through 2017-2023 to the Russian Science Foundation (RSF), which will distribute these supplementary funds to support cutting-edge research projects implemented by outstanding early-career researchers and to create new world-class laboratories with industrial co-funding.
