Science on Tap—When antibiotics fail

Join us at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 16 at UnQuarked.
There is no age limit to attend this event.
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.
Science on tap

Science on Tap is a convivial opportunity to engage with Lab scientists on their current projects. A brief presentation is followed by lively questions, answers, and discussion. The fun takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Plaza in Los Alamos.

The sessions are a joint project between the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District.
