We learn more about superbugs like K. pneumoniae from Dr. Luis Ostrosky-Zeichner of UTHealth. He’s working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to develop guidelines for dealing with another superbug.
Then we revisit our 2016 conversation about how doctors are preparing for a post-antibiotic world with Dr. Cesar Arias of UTHealth and Dr. Yousif Shamoo of Rice University.
