USF scientists invent mighty medical mite

Abstract:
USF chemists have developed new synthetic antibiotics and a nano-sized delivery system that successfully attacks drug resistant bacteria in the body. The new synthetic antibiotics developed by Turos and other USF chemists specifically target certain types of bacteria and do not attack other useful microbes in the body. The antibiotics are delivered directly to the bacteria using a nano-sized delivery vehicle that was created by one of Turos' graduate students, Jeung-Yeop Shim.
