Since the 1928 discovery of penicillin, the antibiotic era revolutionized the practice of modern medicine, decreasing morbidity and mortality the world over. Unfortunately, rapid evolution of antibiotic resistance (AR), combined with a failing drug discovery pipeline, threatens a post-antibiotic era in which common bacterial infections are once again fatal. The goals of the Dillon lab are therefore to identify, assess, and mechanistically understand antibiotic interactions to design new therapeutical regimens for leading AR bacterial pathogens. We focus on targeting AR pathogens through uncovering novel synergistic antibiotic interactions, understanding the genetic basis for AR, and developing therapies to counter the evolution of AR. We utilize in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models of infection to study AR.
