Bugs and Drugs: The Resistance Wars | World Science Festival Brisbane

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

Indicative Rate * AU$10 to AU$35

Join the fight against superbugs with cutting-edge science at your defence.

Antibiotic drugs have saved millions of lives since the 1940s. However, while disease-causing bacteria have changed, our pharmaceutical weapons have not, raising the threat of deadly armies of superbugs. The medical and scientific community is rallying but will they crack the microbial codes in time?

Award-winning broadcaster Norman Swan leads their panel in an analysis of how science, government and industry must join forces to defend us in the escalating war of resistance.
