It's All Academic Festival: 5th October 2019

Its All Academic Festival 2019 banner

Microbiology@UCL was proud to participate in this year's It's All Academic Festival at UCL, a day of fun and hands-on events open to the public.

People of all ages were infected with the enthusiasm of microbes through our “Wonderful World of Microbes” hands-on display table.

Well done to Microbiology@UCL ECR rep Lucy van Dorp, who gave a fascinating talk on The Search for Patient Zero.
