In Europe alone, about 3.5% of hospital admissions are related to side effects of medicines. Many patients are not treated properly because they do not respond or respond poorly to medicines.

In this episode, Claire Selbeck talks to Professor Fu. As a recipient of the ERC Consolidator Grant, Dr Jingyuan Fu offers a solution to this problem by changing the bacteria that live in the guts of humans.
