It almost sounds like the plot of an action sci-fi movie: using technology to capture and decimate a bacteria that threatens the health of millions. Except this isn’t a movie. It’s the work of the Regents of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and their innovative pilot program to improve oral health and prevent bloodstream infection using novel biopolymers. Thanks to your generous donations, a $25,000 DTA Foundation grant will help them continue their research.
Recently, we sat down with UCSF assistant researcher Yung-Ching Chien and UCSF professor Pamela Den Besten to find out more about the program and how other states could implement a similar one.
