I was checking out Missouri River flood reporting in regional papers, when I came across this article in the Omaha World-Herald. It seems that the Russian government is concerned about drug-resistant bacteria and has given a $4.5 million grant to support the work of University of Nebraska Medical Center researcher Alexander Kabanov. Kabanov leads the UNMC Center for Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine. I often mention that there is little support for antibacterial resistance research and antibacterial drug discovery. While this is certainly true in the US, we don't have much data on funding in other countries. Every little (or big) bit helps.
