Science on the 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. Unfortunately due to the global outbreak of Covid-19 we have been forced to cancel this series of events until the next academic year. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause.

Impact

Studies to advance our understanding of bacteria are helping us to tackle the global challenge of antibiotic resistance through the development of new antimicrobial drugs.
