Rise of the Superbug – Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria: Dr. Karl Klose at TEDxSanAntonio


TEDx Talks

Please note: Due to a power outage at the event, there is a gap in the middle section of this talk. We do not have capture of that section of the talk, but wanted to make as much of Dr. Klose’s talk available as possible.

As founder and director of the South Texas Center for Emerging Infectious Diseases, with 19 infectious disease laboratories, Dr. Klose’s research focuses on understanding bacterial pathogenesis in order to develop effective vaccines and therapeutics.

Overview: The Superbug does exist. Dr. Klose offers profiles of bacteria and their sinister ways of evolving into antibiotic-resistant menaces. A cleverly designed slideshow accompanies Dr. Klose. ‘No more meat treated with antibiotics’ might be your take-away mantra.
