Wayne State receives $1.9 million NIH award to aid in treatment of life-threatening infections

(Wayne State University - Office of the Vice President for Research) Infections caused by vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VREfm) bacteria can often be serious and life threatening. These drug-resistant bacterial pathogens are one of the most problematic in the hospital setting, especially in immune system deficient patients, and constitute an emerging local and global health crisis. Wayne State University recently received a five-year, $1.9 million grant from the the National Institutes of Health to further explore treatment of these problematic bacteria in the hospital setting.
