Nitasha Menon, PhD student at Amrita School of Biotechnology, Amritapuri, presented her study on antimicrobial resistance at the 23rd Evergreen International Phage Biology meeting at Olympia, WA, USA, from August 4-9, 2019. Her work was titled "Isolation of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa Bacteriophages AM.P1 and AM.P2 from Wastewater and Characterization of Phage Activity against Multidrug Resistant Clinical Strains from South India". 

At Amrita School of Biotechnology, several labs are jointly looking into waste water issues including Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). In November 2018, Amrita School of Biotechnology had joined with Tata Institute of Genetics and Society (TIGS) under the aegis of University of California, San Diego (UCSD), to conduct cutting-edge research in antimicrobial resistance, a rapidly-spreading phenomenon which threatens to make once-treatable bacterial infections deadly again and jeopardize the delivery of modern medicine.
