About the Event
Dr Dany Beste (Senior Lecturer in Microbial Metabolism)
The global increase in superbugs which can resist all antibiotic treatments poses one of the biggest threats to humankind which will have catastrophic effects on human health. Apocalyptic doomsday scenarios where we could routinely see deaths from minor surgery within 20 years is a reality if we do not stem the tide of these antibiotic resistant superbugs. Come and find out about the what, the why and the how of antibiotic resistance and futuristic antibiotic alternatives. Resistance is futile!An intranasal spray or an injection vaccine, which is a better way of vaccination against Flu or Covid?
Dr Qibo Zhang (Senior Lecturer in Immunology)
The talk will discuss about the pros and cons of intranasal versus injection vaccination against Flu, and whether there is a possibility or a need for an intranasal spray vaccine against Covid/Coronavirus.
