A new tool developed by U-M engineers could help find ways to stop antibiotic-resistant infections and new viruses—and aid in the design of nanoparticles for different purposes. Identifying whether and how a nanoparticle and protein will bind with one another is an important step toward being able to design antibiotics and antivirals on demand, and a computer model developed at the University of Michigan can do it. Angela Violi, an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of mechanical engineering and corresponding study author, discusses the new tool and its significance.
