#90 Preventing The Next Pandemic (Part 2 of 2) Quantum Biology & Bacteria with Professor Johnjoe McFadden

The Doctor's Kitchen Podcast

Professor Johnjoe McFadden is on the show today, he is Professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Surrey. His principle field of research is in molecular genetics, particularly of microbes that cause infectious diseasesand particularly antimicrobial resistance. Initially he did his PhD at Imperial College London and went on to work on human genetic diseases.As well as studying infectious disease he has also been an advocate for Quantum Biology for nearly twenty years. In 2014, he, with the physicist, Jim Al-Khalili wrote ‘Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology’, describing recent exciting discoveries of quantum mechanisms in photosynthesis, bird navigation, enzymes and maybe even consciousness.Today we talk about:What causes resistant bacteriaThe ‘scary twin’ phenomenonWhat we can learn from multidrug resistant TB (MDRTB)Issues with the current use of antimicrobials and how we can reduce the burdenHow quantum biology relates to human consciousnessCheck out The Doctor's Kitchen website for full show notes and social media links for this and all other episodesSee acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
