Summary

Join the fight against superbugs with cutting-edge science as your defence

 Antibiotic drugs have saved millions of lives since the 1940s. However, while disease-causing bacteria continue to change, our pharmaceutical defences have not, raising the threat of deadly armies of superbugs and a return to the dark days of infection care. The medical and scientific community is rallying but will they crack the microbial codes in time?

Our panel will discuss how science, government and industry must join forces to defend us in the escalating war of resistance.
