From Tuesday 27th March 2018 18:30 to 19:30
Shakespeare’s Hamlet addresses life, death and the nature of existence. Prof Charles is interested in these big questions, particularly in relation to microbes and their interaction with us. One of the greatest challenges in medicine today results from the observation that bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to all classes of treatment, and consequently we are facing the end of the antibiotic era.
This talk will show how genomic information can give insights into the factors impacting microbial life and death and how this information can be ‘translated’ into new therapeutics.
You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy this free public lecture, and there will be a chance to meet the speaker at a drinks reception after the talk.
