 GCBS Assistant Professor Receives NIH Research Project Grant (R01)

Dr. Manal Swairjo

GCBS Assistant Professor, Manal Swairjo, PhD, received a National Institutes of Health Research Project Grant (RO1) for $429,713 per year for five years for the project “RNA Modifications: Structure and Mechanism.”

Due to the spread of threatening bacterial infections resistant to multiple antibiotics, there is an urgent need to identify new targets and develop novel antibacterial agents. The proposed research will uncover the molecular and structural basis for the essentiality of four newly characterized bacterial proteins involved in the biosynthesis of a modified RNA nucleotide in bacteria, thus enabling future development of a new class of molecular targets for antibacterial agents to combat resistant infections.
