The Battle Against Superbugs: The problem of antibiotic resistance and new therapies on the horizon

13 August 2018 @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm


How does antibiotic resistance arise? “What turns a normal bug into a ‘superbug’?”

We will delve into the topic of ‘superbugs’ and what makes them not so super, the issue of antibiotic resistance, and what members of the public can do to help prevent its spread. We’ll also cover new treatments available or that may be on the horizon.

Callum Vidor from Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute will talk about his recent research on ‘superbugs’ at a free talk at the Library during Science Week.
