Described by the World Health Organisation as one of the three greatest threats to mankind.

The evening will begin with a screening of the film “Resistance” which looks at the devastating impact of antibiotic resistance and asks “Do we need to save antibiotics to save ourselves”.

A debate will follow with a panel, including Prof Laura Piddock and Prof Neil Woodford, inviting questions from the audience to discuss the topic: Are new antibiotics the only way to solve this crisis and what can we do to maintain those that we currently have?

This event is jointly hosted by University College London, the British Science Association and Antibiotic Action on behalf of the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, The Longitude Prize, The Society for General Microbiology, The Society for Applied Microbiology and The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance.

Questions for the panel may be submitted to Dr Adam Roberts prior to the event.

Doors open at 4.15 pm, refreshments available.
