The purpose of the Phagebiotics Research Foundation is to support bacteriophage research around the world. Bacteriophages are viruses which infect and kill bacteria. Bacteriophage therapy has been used in some parts of the world since the 1920s and are under renewed consideration worldwide as tools for fighting the growing crisis of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
We support collaborative research that helps establish the safety and efficacy of phage therapy for key applications, working toward FDA approval of this approach. Our goals also include education regarding phage therapy for medical, scientific and general audiences and helping to develop the US infrastructure needed for its application.
