Depending on who you ask, antibiotics are the best and worst defense against disease-bearing bacteria. On the one hand, they are very effective and easy to administer. Unfortunately, the more we use them, the more bacteria learn to thrive in a so-called “antibacterial” environment, culminating in a worst-case scenario where all bacteria are entirely resistant to antibiotics. Fighting against that future are bioresearchers from the University of Illinois, Chicago, who are pursuing more clever ways to prevent microbes from diseasing us.
The University of Illinois at Chicago was recently awarded $9.6 million in the form of a five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to establish an Autism Center of Excellence. The center will be one of five funded centers in the United States, and it is the only one in the Midwest. Nationally, the NIH awards $100 million for the Autism Centers of Excellence research program.
