Event Description

This event is open to those of all ages!

While the discovery of antibiotics have saved countless lives, their use over time has resulted in more cases where they are proving ineffective. What do you do when antibiotics no longer work? During this event Sofiya Micheva-Viteva, with the Lab’s Biosecurity and Public Health group, will talk about some of the approaches researchers are taking to use existing drugs in new ways and how original antimicrobial therapies might help stem the tide of potentially lethal pathogens.
