Eradicating antimicrobial resistance genes from human pathogen communities using CRISPR-Cas9

Lead Research Organisation: University of Exeter
Department Name: University of Exeter Medical School

Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest threats to human health of our time and discovering ways to prevent the spread of AMR would be truly ground breaking. This develops the CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing system to target and destroy AMR genes in complex microbial communities present in the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients.
