      Certainly.

      However, we need to not only do the research but also change our attitudes. Even the simple act of washing your hands properly in a hospital drastically reduces the chance of spreading MRSA.

      we need new antibiotics with novel modes of action. Our research helped identifying some new drug leads from natural products with their ability to kill MRSA in the lab. New rapid diagnostic techniques for early detection of drug resistance and effective treatment should beat MRSA.
