Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the Grand Challenges in Global Health Award to Prof. Ron Weiss

Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the Grand Challenges in Global Health has awarded Prof. Ron Weiss research on "Programmed Pathogen Sense and Destroy". Prof. Weiss and his group plan to create an anti-microbial pathogen sense and destroy system by engineering sentinel/killer cells that detect the presence of pathogenic bacteria, report the identity of the pathogen with a coded ouput signal, and secrete specific bacteriocins/lysins that destroy the pathogen.
