On TWiM #55Â we discussed the remarkable ability of copper to reduce hospital acquired infections. Now you can watch Michael Schmidt, TWiM co-host and a co-author on this work, discuss the findings at a recent TEDx talk in Charleston, South Carolina.
On episode #53 of the science show This Week in Microbiology,Â Vincent, Laura, David, Kalin and Paul get together at the Society for General Microbiology meeting in Manchester, England to talk about next-generation approaches to antimicrobial therapy.
You can find the audio for TWiM #53, along with show notes, at microbeworld.org/twim. Watch video of the episode below.

In the past five days we released three science shows on the TWi* network.
On This Week in Microbiology (TWiM) episode #51,Â Vincent, Michael, and Elio meet up with Hazel Barton to talk about cave microbiology.
On This Week in Parasitism (TWiP) episode #51,Â special guest Anthony A. James joins Vincent and Dickson to discuss how mosquitoes can be genetically modified to control infectious diseases.
On This Week in Virology (TWiV) episode #222, the complete TWiV team discusses the amazing finding that cyclic GMP-AMP synthase is a cytosolic innate immune DNA sensor.
Thanks for listening.
On episode #41 of the science show This Week in Microbiology,Â Vincent and Michael travel to San Francisco for the 52nd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC), where they meet with Bill, John, and Victor to discuss tuberculosis, monitoring infectious disease outbreaks with online data, and outside-the-box approaches to antibacterial therapy.
