Dr Philip Warburton, Lecturer in Medical Microbiology at Plymouth University, leads this demonstration as part of World Antibiotic Awareness Week (13-19 November).

This event is a rare opportunity to feed your curiosity in science and get involved in culturing and identifying bacteria in our laboratories.

Antibiotic resistance kills over 700,000 people globally each year, with this figure set to rise substantially by 2050. 

At the University, our world-leading research is developing a potent first in class single-dose antibiotic. Here is a a chance to understand why antibiotic resistance is fast becoming a global health issue and to find out what you can do about it and how our world-leading research aims to help.

Limited spaces are available for this free event and booking is essential via the above link. The event is for those aged 18+ only.

Please meet us in the Portland Square Foyer before we move on to our laboratories.
