More than a dozen students at NSU’s Palm Beach Campus generously donated a few hours of their time on a national holiday for the unique opportunity for “15 minutes of fame.” Research led by Nathan Unger, Pharm.D., AAHVIP, assistant professor of pharmacy practice at NSU College of Pharmacy, was again featured on the international television series “Chasing Monsters” (aka “Wild Catch,” aka “Fishing Adventurer”).

Unger originally appeared in the series which aired in the United Kingdom and Canada in 2015, and is now streaming on Netflix (https://www.netflix.com/title/80092415). The television series host, Cyril Chauquet, contacted Unger to film a follow-up episode on his original research investigating antibiotic resistance in the oral flora of shark species. The episode was filmed on location at the Palm Beach Campus, predominately in the Pharmaceutical Compounding Lab.

Students had the opportunity to interact with the series host, producer and cameraman, gaining valuable insight into the complexities of composing a television program. The crew was particularly impressed by the exceptional professionalism demonstrated by the students and the fact that so many students were present voluntarily on their day off. The trailer for the first season of the series, which includes an appearance by Unger, can be seen by going to the following website: https://vimeo.com/138628146.
