“Phages in Technicolor: Innovating Virus Discovery to Combat Antibiotic Resistance and More”
Siân Owen is a microbiologist who studies bacteria through the lens of their viruses: phages. She was a graduate student with Professor Jay Hinton at the University of Liverpool, UK, and is currently a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Michael Baym at Harvard Medical School. Her work has included discovery of prophage-encoded phage defense systems, understanding the impact of prophages on antibiotic sensitivity in bacteria; and exploration of phages that parasitize antibiotic resistance plasmids.
