Join Professor Brendan Gilmore from the School of Pharmacy Queen's University, Belfast as he gives his lecture on “Antibiotic Discovery in the Post-Antibiotic Era”. 

Professor Gilmore's research focuses on understanding the processes which govern bacterial biofilm formation and tolerance to antibiotics, and the discovery of novel antibiotics and disinfectant approaches. His recent work has included the application of cold plasmas for biofilm decontamination, discovery of novel antibiotics and biocatalytic enzymes from extremely halophilic microorganisms, and uncovering novel druggable targets in bacterial biofilm formation among the ESKAPE pathogens.

After the lecture light refreshments will be served.
