After I graduated in France in the field of biotechnologies in September 2012, I came to the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick to do my PhD. I am in my third year and I am working on the development of phage therapy to overcoming bacterial resistance in the case of canine skin infection caused by Staphylococcus pseudintermedius. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a worldwide growing problem. The extensive use of antibiotics has led to a worrying situation where clinicians have to deal with bacterial infections due to multidrug-resistant bacteria. Phage therapy where phages, the viruses of bacteria, are administered to cure an infection, can be an interesting and effective alternative method to antibiotics. This project is part of the European TRAIN-ASAP programme, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded by the European commission.
