Science on the Hill (The Rise of the Superbugs: Will your next infection kill you?)
School of Life Sciences Atrium, University of Warwick

Come and find out more about the exciting research happening at Gibbet Hill.

'Science on the Hill' is a new exciting programme of public engagement events being jointly hosted by the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School. These interactive two hour events will serve to showcase the new research being performed at the Gibbet Hill campus by these two schools to the local community.

Our second Science on the Hill event will focus on the growing threat of antibiotic resistance to human health. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is the ability of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, to resist antimicrobials such as antibiotics or antiviral drugs, which are designed to kill them. As a result, standard treatments become ineffective. AMR is now recognised as one of the most serious public health challenges we face today. With the alarming rise in ‘superbugs’ that are resistant to multiple antibiotics, deaths due to antibiotic-resistant infections are increasing every year. In this session, we will discuss the causes of AMR, the prevalence of AMR in the hospital, the community and the environment, and some novel solutions to tackle the problem.

Science on the Hill (All about (biological) time)
School of Life Sciences Atrium, University of Warwick

Come and find out more about the exciting research happening at Gibbet Hill.

'Science on the Hill' is a new exciting programme of public engagement events being jointly hosted by the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School. These interactive two hour events will serve to showcase the new research being performed at the Gibbet Hill campus by these two schools to the local community.2

Our third event of the series investigates the effects of circadian biology (the roughly 24 hour cycle that governs physiological processes of living beings).

Do you ever wake up before your alarm clock goes off? Do your aches and pains always bother you at the same time of the day? Circadian clocks in humans, animals and plants orchestrate daily changes in many aspects of physiology, both in health and in disease. We will discuss current research into mechanisms of these processes and applications for medicine and crop improvement.
