Physician, researcher, and ethics professor Matt McCarthy is on the front lines of a groundbreaking clinical trial testing a new antibiotic to fight lethal superbugs, bacteria that have built up resistance to the life-saving drugs in our rapidly dwindling arsenal. This trial serves as the backdrop for the compulsively readable “Superbugs.” Dr. McCarthy explores the history of bacteria and antibiotics bringing to light how we arrived at this juncture of both incredible breakthrough and extreme vulnerability.
