Superbugs, or antibiotic-resistant bacteria, claimed the lives of 700,000 people in 2016, and experts estimate that this number will continue to rise. Yet don’t despair.

Rather, Brenner’s solution is a technological one, including an elegant application of physics. getAbstract recommends this encouraging talk as a standout example of modern problem solving.
