The event was part of the ongoing series of evening showcases where Imperial's researchers share the wonder of their work with members of the public.
Our PhD student, Ashleigh Myall, was representing the CMPH during November’s Imperial Lates. The event explored infections, deadly diseases, and our work to beat them. Equipped with Nerf guns I was featured on the colleges new website helping to run a stand which educates the public about the antibiotic arms race going. More than 1000 members of the general public attended, including students, children, from a variety of backgrounds. Many had little idea of the hidden dynamics which antimicrobial resistance is becoming so prominent through, it was great to have discussions with many keen and interested members of the public.
