Welcome to IPATH 
Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics


We are the first dedicated phage therapy center in North America, bringing innovative research and clinical practice to the field of medicine. Join us on our journey and witness a revolutionary wave of solutions to combat antibiotic resistance.

COVID-19 Impact:

Due to the strain that COVID-19 has had on our healthcare system, including our infectious disease physicians, laboratory staff and regulatory agencies, we ask that all new phage therapy evaluations be put on hold indefinitely.

We will keep everyone informed when this situation changes, and we are able to resume business as usual.

Please stay healthy and practice social distancing.
