Dr Eugene Roscioli is a member of the RAH Lung Research Laboratory, Senior Lecture for the University of Adelaide and principle investigator for research to identify and therapeutically target dysregulated autophagy (cellular recycling) in  airways afflicted by inflammatory disease. One focus of this research is improving current antibiotic options by promoting airway cells to clear bacteria using their own systems (i.e. bacterial autophagy, which is called xenophagy). Paradoxically, frontline antibiotic options for respiratory disease potently block xenophagy, which may prevent the clearance of intracellular bacteria from airway cells and favour a scenario of persistent infection and the generation of antibiotic tolerant microorganisms. Identifying and correcting the structural properties in macrolide antibiotics that block has the potential to, 1) address a major source of airway disease exacerbation and progression in bacterial infection, 2) restore systems which allow airway cells to clear bacteria, 3) potentially mitigate an unrecognised mechanism responsible for the generation of antibiotic tolerant bacteria, and 4) work towards next generation antibiotics.
