To Be Determined

Bridget Hegarty, Ph.D.

When designing treatment processes to ensure safe drinking water, engineers have focused on removing human pathogens and have ignored the role that bacteriophages may play in regulating communities of harmful bacteria, such as mycobacteria. As mycobacteria and other opportunistic pathogens in drinking water cause an increasing number of infections in the US, it is clear that new treatment methods are needed. Harnessing mycobacteriophages is one intriguing new solution for controlling mycobacteria growth in drinking water.
