Microbial Research Laboratory

Our laboratory works on the identification of new antibiotic molecules that will allow continuing preventing and treating infectious diseases in humans, animals, crops…. We use Alberta plants as the source of our next generation of antibiotics, a new approach as all the commercialized natural antibiotics are produced by bacteria or fungi. We connect with First Nation knowledge keepers to compare the traditional knowledge of the plants with the scientific results obtained for them.
