Discovery and development of bacteriophage for phage therapy

Lead organisation(s): 
Monash University.
University of California in San Diego.
Project type: 
In progress
We are working with clinicians in the Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics at the University of California in San Diego. Phage therapy is frontier medicine, and has FDA approval for use in hospitals in the USA. Isolating clinically-effective "cocktails" is a challenge that can only be met by collaboration between research scientists trained in phage biology (Monash) and clinicians with experience in clinical deployment (UCSD).
The project was inititated this year, to run for 5 years.
