Nextbiotics

A biotechnology company, founded in 2017 and based in San Francisco, with a platform that enables viruses to be engineered for use as therapeutics against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Nextbiotics combines bacteriophage therapy (Phage therapy) with CRISPR technology to reverse antibiotic resistance.The engineered viruses will specifically target drug-resistant bacteria and generate double-strand breaks, destroying the drug resistant genes or the genomic DNA of the bacteria, which will kill the bacteria.

One of the founders, Dr. Jorge Bardales, has a Ph.D. in Biophysics from University of California Berkeley and worked in the lab of Jennifer Doudna, one of the original group of scientists that developed CRISPR as a biotechnology tool.
