How do bacteria build resistance against antibiotics? Experience an interactive installation that explores the dangers of antimicrobial resistance.

Fighting Bac invites you to explore the dangers of antimicrobial resistance, or how bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics due to overuse. Created by a group of local young people in collaboration with artist Laure Barthelemy and researchers from the National Heart and Lung Institute, this thought-provoking art and science installation shows the power of creativity to address complex scientific and societal challenges. Come and join the conversation!
