Phage researcher & veterinarian perspective: Phage therapy to combat a shell infection in a sea turtle


Wednesday, November 10 2021 at 3:00 pm Eastern Time (EST)

Today's Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84695754954?pwd=NVYvTVl3dFMyL3pOdkJ3N2xnc2pNUT09

A 42-year old loggerhead sea turtle suffered from a septicemic cutaneous ulcerative disease (SCUD) for the past 4 years, over time, the infection became resistant to most antibiotic treatments. Collaboration between veterinarians and researchers from several universities, phage therapy in combination with antibiotics was administered using multiple routes of application over an 8 month period, leading to a reduction in clinical symptoms. Join this seminar to hear from veterinarian Dr. Whitney Greene & phage researcher Prof. Julianne Grose talk about this success story.
