Résumé

It is a long time since phage therapy has increasingly raised the interest of scientists and health care professionals in want for an intercurrent with antibiotic treatments. Bacteriophages which are specific viruses that are harmless to humans are believed to be the key to solving the growing inefficiency of antibiotics caused by multi-drug-resistant bacteria. At ISEM, researchers work to improve the ability of phages to minimise bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

CNRS Images,

Our work is guided by the way scientists question the world around them and we translate their research into images to help people to understand the world better and to awaken their curiosity and wonderment.
