This funding, given over three years, will allow Adrian Tsang to create a library of lysozymes.
Pr. Tsang’s team is developing a novel approach to combat the overuse of antibiotics on farms around the country.
The funding obtained by the director of Concordia’s Centre for Structural and Functional Genomics will allow him to characterize and produce naturally occurring enzymes that kill bacteria, called lysozymes.
The multi-million dollar funding comes from Génome Québec, Genome Canada, as well as Elanco, one of the top animal feed producers in the world.
