Professor Gabriela Godaly is working with Hamlet BioPharma to develop a new therapeutic concept to combat tuberculosis through the use of a bactericidal peptide. The drug candidates has demonstrated potent effects in animal models. Tuberculosis is one of the top ten causes of death world-wide and the growing problem of drug resistance is seriously affecting the treatment options for this patient group.
