In New Drugs from Old BugsProfessor Brett Neilan will outline an approach to counter one of the major challenges of modern medicine, that of increasing antibiotic resistance.

In non-specialist terms, he will explain how biosynthetic engineering using bacteria, algae and fungi can be used to create antibiotics, antivirals, and immunosuppressants. The past two decades have witnessed major advances in our understanding of this area and its scale of potential.
