Bacterial antibiotic resistance is on the rise globally, threatening modern medicine as we know it. Nearly every medical procedure, from cancer treatment and organ transplantation to hip or joint replacement, is dependent on effective antibiotics.
This British Science Week, join LIVE with Scientists in collaboration with Antibiotic Research UK (ANTRUK) for a live webinar on antibiotic resistance. Hear about what antibiotic resistance is, how it develops and the threats it poses to effective healthcare.
You’ll hear from two PhD students whose research focuses on tackling antibiotic resistance in two different types of bacteria, E. coli and C. difficile.
Attendees will be given a chance to ask thier own questions to our scientists, as well as take part in a quiz - with a prize for the winner!
This event is aimed at high school and post-16 students, with content relevant to the Biology syllabus. However, we welcome anyone to join us for this fun and interactive event!
Looking forward to seeing you there.
Zoom details will be provided by email before the event.
