Project Description

This project aims to understand the physicochemical factors responsible for inactivating and stabilising bacteriophages (phages) in liquid, semi-solid and solid formulations. Phages are powerful, naturally occurring antimicrobial agents against pathogenic bacteria including the superbugs. The research will significantly advance the field of phage chemistry and benefit the agriculture, livestock and biotechology industries through enabling formulation of phages stably for antimicrobial use in a wide range of settings including crops, livestock, humans
and environments.
