Experts from the School of Life Sciences of CUHK discovered how a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, which causes peptic ulcers and stomach cancer, has managed to survive in the acidic environment of the human gut. On 11 December, Prof. Wong Kam-bo of the Centre for Protein Science and Crystallography announced that the research paper has been selected as ‘Paper of the Week’ in Journal of Biological Chemistry. The CUHK research team is now working on the design of new drugs that could combat H. pylori before the prevalence of antibiotic resistance gets out of hand.
