Professor David Low from UCSB’s Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, will pursue an innovative global health and development research project titled “Strategy for development of enteric pathogen-specific phage”. Low’s research focuses on a ground-breaking way to deal with serious bacterial pathogens that are evolving to become resistant to many once-powerful antibiotics. “He will engineer phage to selectively target and destroy several pathogenic bacteria to prevent enteric diseases in infants,” notes Kenny Slaught.
