A microbe fighter at 90

Retired university professors typically rest on their laurels after many years of teaching and research and take it easy. Not so for Hebrew University Faculty of Medicine emeritus professor Nathan Citri. Two decades after his retirement, the veteran microbiology expert has developed a novel kit enabling speedy detection of multidrugand extremely antibiotics-resistant “superbugs” and providing instant guidelines for patients’ appropriate treatment in hospitals.

His invention will improve patient care, save lives, shorten hospital stays and significantly reduce healthcare costs around the world, according to Yissum, HU’s research and development company, which recently signed a licensing agreement for commercializing the kits with BioConnections, a microbiology company in the UK.

The Polish-born Citri, who marks his 91st birthday this month, was in March one of 27 HU researchers to be honored in a permanent photo exhibition on the Mount Scopus campus’s Innovators’ Way.

“I hardly dealt with bacteria until the last two or three years,” Citri told The Jerusalem Post in an interview in his apartment in Jerusalem’s retirement residence Nofim.
