Congratulations to Dr Siouxsie Wiles, who has been named as a finalist for the 2018 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year. Chief Judge Cameron Bennett said that Dr Wiles "is tackling one the biggest health issues facing New Zealand and the world, the growing threats of antibiotic-resistant superbugs and infectious diseases. Her innovative and pioneering work in bioluminescence is redefining modern medicine." Wiles' BWB Text Antibiotic Resistance: The End of Modern Medicine? was released last year.
