New Hope for Antibiotic Resistance in East Africa

November 25, 2018

Through our first 2 workshops in Africa we have taught 50 scientists how to isolate phages to kill antibiotic-resistant bacteria — and those researchers have already amplified that work 10-fold!


For every scientist we have trained, they have taught phage biology to 10 or more others. And for every $1 we have spent on the workshops, the participants have won more than $10 in grants to fund their phage product development.

Great job, everyone!

Please help us multiply this important work. Matching funds will be available for donations received on Giving Tuesday — 2 days from now. To deliver 2 workshops in 2019, we need to raise $20,000 plus win additional small grants. Initial preparations are underway for one workshop in West Africa (Ghana) and another in East Africa (Tanzania). Stay tuned for exciting info about those!

With Thanksgiving,
