Bacteriophage research


Support phage research into the new generation of antibiotics; as superbugs are a threat literally to the whole of the world’s population.           

More and more types of bacteria are developing resistance against some or all antibiotics. In the long term, this means that even something like bronchitis can become deadly. Even now, there are 33,000 deaths in Europe annually due to an infection by resistant bacteria.
