Stars project

Jerry Wells coordinated a Marie Curie Initial Training Network on antimicrobial drug discovery called STARS.

The problem the STARS project  was seeking to address was the urgent need for the development of antimicrobials and anti-infectives to redress the balance between drug resistance and the available therapeutic options.

There were 2 sub-programmes on emerging drug targets, one found in a group of pathogenic Gram-positive bacteria and the other concerning the malaria parasite.
