Chemical Inhibition: A New Approach to Investigate the Role of a Key protease, CtHtrA, from Chlamydia Trachomatis

Project dates: 2012-02-10 00:00:00 - 2015-07-31 00:00:00

Infertility in women frequently results from infection with Chlamydia trachomatis. This project will develop an inhibitor compound against a important protein from this bacteria. This will establish a new scientific approach to study Chlamydia trachomatis. This project will also contribute to the development of new treatments for infertility.
