Science Public Lecture Series: Predatory bacteria: natural killers of problematic pathogens

For this lecture, Professor Liz Sockett FRS, Professor of Bacterial Genetics in the School of Life Sciences, will explore some of the mechanisms by which bacteria invade and kill each other and explain what is needed to combat resistant infections.

Professor Sockett studies predatory bacteria as potential alternatives to antibiotics for some bacterial infections and to understand the mechanism of prey invasion. It is important to develop alternatives to antibiotics as pathogenic bacteria are developing resistance to conventional antibiotics. Working out how bacteria kill each other naturally is part of the solution.

This event will take place 6-7pm on Thursday 21 November in B1 School of Physics and Astronomy, University Park.

Attendance is free and all are welcome.
