Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition Stall July 2-8

Next week researchers from the Modernising Medical Microbiology consortium, collaborating groups and I will exhibit the Resistance is Futile stall at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition. The exhibition is a free event in central London open to all visitors. Our stall is an opportunity to tell visitors about our research, and how advances in genetics are influencing day-to-day life. On show at the Resistance is Futile stall:

    Oxford Nanopore Technology Demos
      DNA sequencing in the NHS is shortening the time to diagnose antibiotic resistance in serious infections

        Evolution Dance Mat
          Resistance mutants arise spontaneously through chance copying errors during DNA replication

            Antibiotic Resistance Coconut Shy
              Antibiotic use gives resistance mutants a strong advantage so they rapidly increase in frequency.

              The exhibition runs from Monday 2 July - Sunday 8 July at Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG. For more information about our stall click here and for general visitor information about the exhibition click here. Please spread the word!

              Our stall is generously supported by Oxford Nanopore Technology, the Nuffield Department of Medicine, and through public engagement research funding awarded to our research groups by the Wellcome Trust, the Royal Society, the National Institute for Health Research, the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, the Natural Environment Research Council, the Medical Research Council, the Newton Fund and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
