Monash Phage Foundry

Monash Phage Foundry (MPF)

The Centre to Impact AMR has assembled a team of world-renowned bacteriophage (phage) experts to create a unique Monash Phage Foundry.

The MPF is supplying therapeutic phages to the clinical referral service 'Victorian Phage Therapy Service' (VicPhage) with the support of The Alfred.

We will also service other hospital partners in the Phage Australia Network and other industry sectors with phages and phage-derived products.

We  provide a range  of solutions  to bacterial problems.

Please contact us today to discuss your project further.
