Investors Support Phage Therapy: Novel Approach to Solve the Antibiotics Crisis Receives Further Millions
Vienna (Austria), 27 June 2019: Austrian biotech company PhagoMed Biopharma GmbH successfully completed another financing round. PhagoMed, located at the Vienna Biocenter, is focused on developing virus-(phage-) based therapies against drug-resistant and chronic bacterial infections.

As a consequence of climate change, rising sea levels are threatening the North Sea coast of Germany. The state of Lower Saxony is investing around 30 million Euros to safeguard the coast at Otterndorf, in Cuxhaven district, where the existing Hadeln Sluice is to be replaced by a new structure.
