Superbugs: The Fight for Our Lives

Our new exhibition 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.

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.

Humanity’s overuse of these life-saving drugs in medicine and agriculture has accelerated the rapid evolution of antibiotic resistance. We are now facing an urgent global health crisis where we may no longer be able to rely on our most trusted medicines. Superbugs takes visitors on an eye-opening journey of discovery about this important issue and encourages a sense of global citizenship.

Superbugs is offered as an Exhibition Blueprint Pack containing all the designs, research and additional assets to allow you to create a unique exhibition customised to your specific location and audience. The exhibition is available now and requires no special insurance, expensive shipping or environmental controls.
