Dispatches from the frontlines of the "Battle of the Bacteria" with Dr. Richard Gallo

There’s a battle underway on the skin between bacteria that make eczema worse and bacteria that can improve eczema symptoms. This fascinating discussion with Dr. Richard Gallo, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the University of California-San Diego, explains his ground-breaking research approach which amplifies the presence of “good” bacteria in order to control overgrowth of problematic strains, like Staph aureus, and ultimately help people with eczema.


This podcast was recorded in 2018 as part of GPER’s research meetup series.
