Superbugs Exhibition at the Science Museum

Science Museum, London announced its newest exhibition, Superbugs, The Fight For Our Life, starting November 09.

The exhibition explores humanity’s response to the unprecedented global threat of antibiotic resistance by examining the microscopic, human and global scales and scientific discoveries from across the globe.

Visitors will glimpse twelve real bacteria colonies in the exhibition, including nine deadly bacteria that the World Health Organisation classifies as a significant threat to human health.

Ian Blatchford, director, Science Museum, said, “As the home of the greatest medical collection in the world, it is fitting that the Science Museum is to open an exhibition on antibiotic resistance – the most pressing medical challenge facing our society.”
