Antibiotic resistance is an increasing battle for scientists to overcome, as more antimicrobials are urgently needed to treat biofilm-associated infections. However, Dr Freya Harrison and colleagues say research into natural antimicrobials could provide candidates to fill the antibiotic discovery gap. Press Release (28 July 2020)

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.
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.
More than 80% of research in the School of Life Sciences was rated as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' in REF2014
