Tanja Schneider is professor for Pharmaceutical Microbiology and focus of her research is on the bacterial cell envelope as a target for (new) antibiotics. Of particular interest is the elucidation of molecular mechanisms of action and resistance and the identification and characterization of novel antibacterial targets. Pivotal to these efforts is the discovery of novel antibiotics and to understand the biology beyond an antibiotic target as well as its integration into the cellular network of bacteria in support of drug discovery. In the course of the German Center for Infection Research a comprehensive antibiotic analysis and screening platform has been established.
