A germ’s journey

16 September 2022 - 18:00

LCB Depot, Leicester

This is a drop-in event, running between 18.00-23.00. 


Immerse yourself in the microscopic world of bacteria and be guided through their microbial world on an interactive journey using a choose-your-own-adventure comic book. 

By 2050 a rise in antibiotic resistance could mean millions of people each year will die from currently treatable infections. Understanding the journey of bacteria, which cause these infections, is vital to preventing this. 

Navigate your way around a series of activities including origami viruses and creating your own bacteria and antibiotics with the De Montfort University Infectious Disease Research Group.
