March 2017 Issue of The Translational Scientist

Welcome to the March issue of The Translational Scientist! This month’s content covers the threat of antibiotic resistance – how we can stem the tide of increasingly prevalent “superbugs”? Our Upfront section delves into micromachines that release pH-responsive payloads in the stomach. We also sit down with the cell therapy virtuoso Catherine Bollard. And we’ve got many more articles coming soon – we’ll be publishing new content every week for this issue so keep checking in to the website for new articles!
