phage antimicrobials

We use bacteriophages for their inherent property, as bacterial killers. We use bacteriophages to fight common infections, biofilm infections, and specifically those that are antibiotic resistant. 


phage biomaterials

In their simplest form, bacteriophages are bionanoparticles than can propagate themselves and self assemble. These properties make bacteriophages more powerful than synthetic nanoparticles.


Phage diagnostics

Bacteriophages are very effective at finding and specifically targeting their host bacteria in nature. We use this property to design better diagnostic tools. 


Aerosolized phage

We investigate aerosolized phage to understand the behaviour of infectious aerosols, as well as to design inhalable therapeutics.
