Ep 9. Chantal Morel & health economy; non-profit antimicrobials; reversing resistance in M. tuberculosis.
Summer episode right here! This month we bring you a thorough discussion we had with Chantal Morel about the economic situation of the antibiotic and diagnostics markets. Why is it no longer working? Can it be changed? In our news section, we talk about a new perspective on how non-profit organizations can help solve these market issues; and a very cool research article proving that resistance in tuberculosis could be reversed by a new kind of chemical.
