MCW professors investigate therapies for antibiotic resistant bacterial infections

Dec. 16 - Nita H. Salzman, MD, PhD, professor of pediatrics and microbiology and molecular genetics, and an associate director for the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW); and Christopher J. Kristich, PhD, associate professor of microbiology and molecular genetics at MCW investigated therapies to prevent antibiotic resistant infections originating in the gastrointestinal tract. The research focused on Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis), a gastrointestinal tract bacterium with the ability to cause a variety of hospital-acquired infections (HAI). The findings of the study were published in Nature.
