Designer Phages

With antibiotic resistance becoming a critical global concern, this recognition highlights the importance of incorporating phage therapy into our arsenal of medical advancements.

This recognition by the World Economic Forum is a testament to the immense potential of phages in transforming healthcare and addressing the challenges posed by antibiotic resistance. The implications for patient care, public health, and the pharmaceutical industry are tremendous.

Phages are showing potential for treating microbiome associated diseases and revolutionizing the engineering of microbiomes for human, animal and plant health.

Phages are also being designed as feed supplements to enhance the growth of livestock, treat certain plant diseases and eliminate dangerous bacteria in food supply chains, in alignment with the World Health Organization’s “One Health” approach.
