Phage Prophylaxis of Cholera – Tufts University’s Andrew Camilli, PhD

Sep302021

Time: 12:00 pm

Location: Zoom (Audience limited to Tufts Members; please contact CIMAR@tufts.edu for more details.)

Levy CIMAR Science Lunch

The Levy CIMAR’s own Dr. Andrew Camilli, a Professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology at the Tufts University School of Medicine, will present on “Phage Prophylaxis of Cholera.” Bacteriophages are viruses that specifically target and kill bacteria, preventing bacterial infections, and Dr. Camilli and his lab study the bacteriophages that kill V. cholerae.

Dr. Camilli is co-founder and scientific advisor to PhagePro, Inc., a Boston-based startup aiming to use bacteriophages to prevent bacterial infections. With the unmitigated rise of antibiotic resistance and the known negative consequences of gut dysbiosis caused by broad-spectrum antibiotics, bacteriophages provide a side effect-free alternative for preventing disease in clinical and community contexts.
