  • Nano-meds could replace antibiotics

    Boston Herald - 09/15/2016

    Microscopic particles of bacteria-killing metal could some day be used to combat deadly infections — a possible antidote to antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that continue to evolve faster than medicine can advance.

    “Antibiotic resistance is one of the greatest public health threats we’re going to face in our lifetime,” said Ben Geilich, a fifth-year bioengineering graduate student involved in the research at Northeastern University. “The thought of going to the doctor with an infection and having them say, ‘I’m sorry, we can’t help you,’ really is mind-blowing.”
