How’s that, you ask?
The greatest challenge in treating these “superbugs” is that we keep throwing stronger and stringer anti-biotics at them (with who knows what effects on ourselves) and pretty soon they become inured to them (think Borg). Now, Ms Lam (a 25 year old Australian PhD student) has developed what seems to be a microscopic shuriken that literally rips the bugs to shreds.
It’s still early days, so we likely won’t be seeing this in use on humans soon, but very cool.
Kudos, Ms Lam!
