Dr. David P. Trudil, senior consultant of Battelle Memorial Institute (the USA) and Executive Vice President of NHDetect Corp, was invited to the Institute of Food Safety and Monitoring (IFSM) of JAAS on August 27, 2013. In his lecture on Phage nanoBiotechnology - Past, Present & Future, Dr. David P. Trudil reviewed phage research history, application of relevant research results in food safety, animal disease treatment and bacteria to treat drug resistant infections, registration of relevant phage products, etc.. He focused on the new techniques and technical difficulties in phage therapy and rapid detection of food source pathogenic bacteria. Meanwhile, he also introduced rapid detection of low-molecular-weight toxins and pesticide residues. The lecture was original in perspectives and broadened the horizon of JAAS young scientists.
Dr. David P. Trudil graduated from the School of Medicine of St. John University and has been engaged in infectious diseases diagnoses, testing and prevention for 30 years. He has published 75 papers and obtained several patents in phage lyase and rapid detection technology.
After the lecture, IFSM Director Liu Xianjin and Prof. Wang Ran held in-depth discussions with Dr. David P. Trudil on low-molecular-weight substance rapid detection, phage production program and relevant technical difficulties. Both sides showed initial intent for cooperation.
