Professor Peter Taylor to deliver UCL Lunch Hour Lecture on antibiotics
Antibiotics are among the most beneficial drugs ever introduced into clinical practice. However, eighty years on from the discovery of penicillin, the overuse and abuse of antibiotics have led to the evolution of multidrug-resistant pathogens, increasingly responsible for severe infections in our hospitals and communities. New ways of thinking about bacterial infections and their control may provide society with the means to face up to these urgent threats.
Professor Peter Taylor will be delivering his
lecture entitled “Antibiotics: ever
diminishing returns” at 1:15pm on Tuesday 3rd December in the Darwin Lecture
Theatre as part of the highly successful UCL Lunch Hour
series. For those of you that are unable to attend, the event will also be
streamed live so that you can watch from the comfort of your own desk.
