Innovation Overground: Phages might solve antibiotic resistance


OMAHA, Neb. (Dec. 3, 2018)—UNeMed’s tech transfer podcast, “Innovation Overground,” published this morning its latest episode, “Bacterial Dilemma.”

In the latest episode, Overground hosts Joe Runge, Tyler Scherr and Charlie Litton, discuss bacterial infections, the rise of antibiotic resistance, and efforts to stay ahead of adaptation.

The episode featured two inventions that focus on phages as a way to solve the problem. The Rockefeller University technology uses phage lysins and the University of California in San Diego is working solutions in their Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics.

Innovation Overground was created to help promote academic innovation and the technology transfer and commercialization efforts at the University of Nebraska and beyond. The podcast intends to examine what it takes to advance academic inventions and discoveries beyond the research bench and into people’s lives as “actual things on a shelf.”
