Episode 6: How Dr. Strathdee Helped Save Her Husband’s Life

In the newest episode of Infectious Conversations, Candace chats with Dr. Steffanie Strathdee: an infectious disease epidemiologist, the Associate Dean of Global Health Sciences at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine, and Co-director at the Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics (IPATH). Dr. Strathdee relied on her extensive knowledge of infectious diseases to help save her husband’s life using phage therapy after he developed a life-threatening, drug-resistant infection in 2016. The couple later wrote a book together titled “The Perfect Predator: A Scientist’s Race to Save Her Husband from a Deadly Superbug,” which was published in 2019.
