Stanford Professor Lucy Shapiro is renowned for her contributions to the fields of developmental biology, molecular biology, and genetics. She discusses how antibiotics are becoming ineffective because bacteria have many ways of acquiring drug resistance. Development of new antibiotics cannot keep pace in this biological arms race. Confounding this problem, there is an increase in prevalent infectious diseases around the world due to overpopulation, globalization, and urbanization. We are rapidly reaching a critical stage in this global threat that has both economic and political implications.
