Matt McCarthy - Superbugs: The Race to Stop an Epidemic

Upcoming Event
Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

In this urgent story of the race against time to develop ways to fight antibiotic-resistant bacteria, McCarthy, a staff physician at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and author of The Real Doctor Will See You Shortly, gives us an inside look at the clinical trials of a new drug scientists hope will combat superbugs like MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria. Along the way McCarthy charts the complicated paperwork and approval process involved in such trials, discusses the ethical debates involved, introduces some of the patients whose lives depend on the outcome of the trials, and looks back over the history of bacteria and antibiotics.
