This could help us understand how to make life harder for undesirable bacteria which invade our body -- a means to knock out their defence mechanisms." Daniel Midtvedt, Post Doc at the Division of Biological Physics "Hopefully, we can contribute to improved understanding of how drugs are received and processed by human cells. It is important to be able to develop new type of drugs, with the hope that we can treat those illnesses which today are untreatable."
