In a world where bacteria are increasingly resistant to antibiotics, the discovery of novel Bacteriophages, bacteria’s million-year-old adversary, could assist with the development of therapies to control life-threatening bacteria…
Heather Hendrickson is a Senior Lecturer at Massey University, where she leads the Hendrickson lab. She investigates bacterial genomes to understand how they evolve and exchange information, a process known as Horizontal Gene Transfer. She also hunts for novel Bacteriaphages to isolate and study; to assist with the continuing pursuit of finding alternative treatments to bacterial diseases.
