Professor Miriam Barlow was honored with a major award last month for her role in developing a method to restore the efficacy of antibiotics and help doctors deal with resistant bacteria.
Barlow, a biologist, worked with American University mathematician Kristina Crona on the Time Machine software to rewind the evolution of bacteria. For that project, Barlow and Crona were chosen from among five finalists in the Health and Medicine category of the annual World Technology Network awards .
“Professor Barlow’s research will help us better understand both how antibiotic resistance happens and how we might even be able to reverse it,” said Juan Meza, dean of the School of Natural Sciences and part of the research team behind Time Machine. “The unique approach combining biology and mathematics to help us understand antibiotic resistance attests to the power of multidisciplinary...
