McMaster professor could have solved the 'superbug' problem
Ontario researchers say they have discovered how bacteria become resistant to antibiotics.
It's a finding that could help prevent so-called ``superbugs.''
Researchers say they found that bacteria fight off antibiotics by stiffening their cell membranes and changing the barrier's electrical charge, becoming a less attractive target to the drugs.
Maikel Rheinstadter, a physics professor with McMaster University in Hamilton, and Andree Khondker, an undergraduate biochemistry student, led the research.
It was recently published in the journal Nature Communications Biology
