      Not quite yet but we are working on cures to a number of different diseases, include:

      1. Osteoporosis: when your bones become less strong as you get older
      2. Antimicrobial resistance: when antibiotics stop working against bacteria

      Not yet, but my work involves interactions between microorganisms so hopefully we can understand these a bit more, and make more progress to curing these!
