The growing prevalence of multiresistant microbes is a global threat that could lead to millions of deaths every year in the coming decades. While old drugs become inefficient and the management of last resort antibiotics turns more challenging, there is a lack of new classes of compounds entering the pipeline.
The vast biodiversity of the world’s oceans and seas is a colossal, yet understudied, source of structural richness. Discovering new chemical entities, genes, and organisms is only the first stage of a variety of strategies to develop new therapies and discover new targets.
In this Special Issue of Marine Drugs, we will welcome contributions dealing with the different approaches to the discovery of new antimicrobial compounds, new targets, and in general, the development of strategies to fight the appearance of resistances.
