Advanced therapeutics: When a Virus is the Cure – phage therapy & mini lungs
We are excited to present our 4th webinar in our Advanced Therapeutics webinar series, which will focus on phage therapy and airway organoids (mini lungs).

Bacteriophages, or “phages” are viruses that selectively infect and replicate in bacteria. They are found in our day-to-day living environment and are the original “natural cure” for bacterial infections, including multi-resistant infections. Phage therapy offers an exciting new treatment option to target difficult-to-treat infections, including infections in patients with cystic fibrosis. Airway organoids created from individual patients’ stem cells provide a model for that individual’s disease. They can be used for disease modelling and personalised medicine.

Hear from two leading experts in their respective fields of paediatric infectious diseases and stem cell biology investigating novel therapeutic options for patients with cystic fibrosis as well as other difficult-to-treat infections.

Speakers and panel members will discuss:

• Phage therapy – what is it and how are we using it to help patients at Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network?
• Airway organoids - what are they and how do we use them in conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis?
• Q&A session – speakers, panel members and attendees

*To accomodate those who are based overseas, please note that this webinar will be recorded. A link to the recorded webinar will be sent to all registrants once it is available, so don't miss out and register today!
