How Phages Saved a Man's Life
March 12, 2018
In addition to being a phage researcher at Yale University, Dr. Benjamin Chan also serves as one of Phages for Global Health's workshop instructors and collaborates with Phages for Global Health to develop a phage product against cholera. In an exciting development, he and his colleagues at Yale New Haven Hospital successfully used phages to treat a patient suffering from an antibiotic-resistant infection. Dr. Chan was recently interviewed about that case on the Science Friday radio show. You can listen to the interview and read more about the clinical case and the underlying science by following these links:
