Meet the cast!
Dr. Hazel Barton is a Professor of Biology and Geosciences at the University of Akron. Deep in one of the longest caves in the world, she has been studying the evolution of antibiotic resistance. This work has revealed that the chemical arms race that led to resistance may also revealed an Achilles heel – resistance breakers. Dr. Barton believes that harnessing these resistance breakers and turning them against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, re-arming and reinvigorating our existing antibiotic arsenal.
