San Francisco Business Times

The University of California, San Francisco and Duke University will lead a $62 million national project to fight antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Duke, in Durham, N.C., will spend $2 million in initial money from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) setting up a nationwide research network for the work. Research will focus on two resistant bacterial strains — methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia coli.
