Luís was the last of my “original PhD team”, that start-up my research group, 4 years ago. He accepted the quest for the discovery and characterization of novel bacteriophages (virus that infect and kill bacteria only) that could be used as new antimicrobial agents against S. epidermidis infections. He was also co-supervised by professor Joana Azeredo and professor Gabrielle Bierbaum, at Bonn University, in Germany. I wish Luís the best luck in his futures endeavours, and thank him for his contributions to my research group and to the scientific field of phage therapy.
