Tuberculosis, and other life-threatening microbial diseases, could be more effectively tackled with future drugs, thanks to new research into an old antibiotic led by Professor David Roper at the School of Life Sciences and Dr Luiz Pedro Carvalho from The Francis Crick Institute.
The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Bronze Award in 2013. This was renewed in April 2015 for a further three years.
"Athena SWAN is a central component of our culture and working practice and we continue to champion the development of a science department that provides collegiality and transparency to ensure equal opportunities for all"
Head of School, Professor Lorenzo Frigerio
