Art, Design and Antimicrobial Resistance. LifeSpace, Dundee.
01/09/15Speaker at the Art, Design and Antimicrobial Resistance discussion event at LifeSpace gallery, Dundee. "Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of microbes like bacteria, viruses and parasites to evade treatment by antibiotics and other drugs. This is an increasing threat to global health as new resistance mechanisms emerge and spread across the world. Microbial life has long captured the interest of many artists. So what can artists contribute to the interdisciplinary approach required to both tackle antimicrobial resistance, and increase public awareness of this important issue?"
