Antibacterial resistance is a very real threat looming today. There are no new antibiotics on the horizon. Our research team – which is a collaboration of Mircobiologists and a scholar of medieval language decided to approach infection from a different angle.
The experiences from the project (which have also recently been reported in local, national and international press) will underpin our talk which will look at the potential of interweaving medieval medical approaches with modern anti-microbial research. We also want to show what we have learned in the process of this unusual collaboration.
