Antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections are becoming a major societal challenge. To solve this problem, researchers are working on new drugs that kill bacteria without promoting resistance, and on new materials that prevent the formation of bacterial biofilms. The latter are the source of resistant variants but are notoriously difficult to remove.

Recently, researchers from the Institute of Physical Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences have discovered that making the surface undulated can help limit the spread of resistant bacteria.

The global overuse of antibiotics has significantly sped up the development of resistant bacteria, which are quickly spreading worldwide and replacing antibiotic-sensitive bacteria. Many commonly-occurring strains of pathogenic bacteria are now resistant to multiple antibiotics, making it imperative to find new methods of combating bacterial infections.
