Benjamin Chan

Benjamin Chan is currently an Associate Research Scientist in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University in the Laboratory of Professor (and all-around awesome dude) Paul Turner. His research includes the development and creation of Virulence Targeting Antibiotics (VTA's) and Resistance Targeting Antibiotics (RTA's) for the treatment of bacterial infections refractory to traditional antibiotic therapy. His work spans the entire 'bench to bedside' spectrum where he has successfully isolated, characterized, and used bacteriophage-based V/RTA's to treat several infections.
