We consider the stochastic reaction-diffusion equation in 1 + 1 dimensions driven by multiplicative
space-time white noise with distributional drift belonging in the negative Hölder space C^\alpha with
\alpha > −1. We assume that the diffusion coefficient is sufficiently regular and nondegenerate. By
using a combination of stochastic sewing and Malliavin calculus, we show that the equation admits
a unique strong solution. This is a joint work in progress with Teodor Holland and Khoa Lê.
