Benefiting from biodiversity
Biodiversity forms our ecosystems, regulates pollutants, and provides products spanning foods to antibiotics. Yet it is being lost at alarming rates. Our researchers are working to safeguard biodiversity, including as a source of next-generation therapies.
- Microbes as sources of novel antimicrobials, biomaterials, and phage therapy
- Insights and applications of comparative immunology
- Securing microbial biodiversity to improve human, animal, and environmental health
Our work on the benefits of biodiversity contributes towards these United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
