How Over-Prescribed Antibiotics Impact Your Life

Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital are using a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to try to develop ways to combat Clostridium difficile or C. diff, the most common and potentially deadly bacterial infection impacting children and adults. It's a hospital-acquired infection, and it is often tied to inappropriate antibiotic use.

He’s also a part of the Alkek Center for Metagenomics and Microbiome Research.
