Bioscience engineers from KU Leuven in Belgium have developed a new antibacterial strategy that weakens bacteria by preventing them from cooperating. Unlike with antibiotics, there is no resistance to this strategy, because the non-resistant bacteria outnumber resistant ones. The findings are published.

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded its Consolidator Grants. This year's recipients include cancer researcher and geneticist Kim De Keersmaecker from KU Leuven. She will receive two million euros to study so-called 'synonymous mutations' and their potential role in the development of cancer.  The human genome consists of 20,000 genes, which our body 'transcribes' into mRNA.
