Art: Floral Bacteria
Thursday, 28 April 2016 14:50
MRC Clinical Research Training Fellow Dr Nicola Fawcett, at the University of Oxford, is using bacterial art to help explain how antibiotics affect the delicate balance of microbes in the gut.
Responsible prescribing of antibiotics is important to prevent the spread of antimicrobial resistance and protect the ‘good’ bacteria in our gut.
Supported by an MRC Public Engagement Seed Fund Award, the work is a collaboration with photographer Chris Wood. The images feature in an exhibition at the John Radcliffe Hospital until 14 May.See more on the MRC Insight blog
