Hecht Lecture: Redesign of Vancomycin for Resistant Bacteria


A summary of studies on the total synthesis and evaluation of the vancomycin family of glycopeptide antibiotics, their ligand binding pocket redesign to address the underlying molecular basis of resistance, and their subsequent peripheral tailoring to address the emerging public health problem of vancomycin resistance will be presented.
