Dr. Pantelis Katharios will cover “Phage therapy as an alternative treatment in aquaculture. Applications in fish hatcheries” on May 26th at 14:00 (CET/Brussels time).
Superbugs resistant to antibiotics have emerged as one of the biggest threats for humanity. The over-use of antibiotics in agriculture and animal production has led to the development of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR), rendering antibiotics ineffective even for human medicine. Bacteriophages (or phages) which are viruses that infect bacteria, have been used as an alternative treatment. Phage therapy is one of the most promising methods to control pathogenic bacteria in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. In this EAStalk webinar, Dr. Pantelis Katharios will discuss the potential of phage therapy for aquaculture with special focus on its advantages for fish hatcheries.
Dr. Katharios has been working on phage therapy for more than 12 years and has served as a coordinator of a Marie Curie-funded international network for the development of phage therapy for aquaculture. His lab conducts research for the development of phage therapy products as smart disinfectants for live feeds in the Greek fish hatcheries.
