Ep 8. Gerry Wright, a biochemist in AMR; a successful phage-therapy treatment; an emergent resistant fungal infection.


One more month at the AMR Studio, we bring you a heartwarming conversation around AMR experiences and work. This month we feature an interview we did with Gerry Wright, a biochemist turn microbiologist working on drug development,and that personally had to face the reality of AMR. In our news section we bring you the happy story of a cystic fibrosis patient successfully treated using phage therapy, and the recent news about an emergent resistant fungal infection.
