My research is concerned with the problem of bacterial resistance. More specifically I will design a quantum mechanical method which will enable high-accuracy binding energies at a modest cost.
The research is cut in two where time spend in Sweden will be focused on obtaining proper structures of penicillin (and other derivates) bound to the beta-lactamase class of enzymes that are responsible for voiding the effect of penicillin.
The project also takes place at Bristol University where I will derive, implement and test the new quantum mechanical method.
The project is financed by The Danish Council for Independent Research (DFF)
