Superbugs: The Fight for Our Lives

Antibiotics have enabled us to combat diseases that were once untreatable. But bacteria have fought back, evolving into superbugs resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics.

Superbugs: The Fight for Our Lives explores how society is responding to the enormous challenge of antibiotic resistance, featuring scientific research from across the globe and the personal stories of those waging war on the superbugs.

Superbugs takes visitors on an eye-opening journey of discovery about this important issue and encourages a sense of global citizenship.

Superbugs is available to hire in the form of a Blueprint pack allowing you to create a unique exhibition customised to your specific location and audience.
