Over the past 20 years bacteria have gone from invisible creatures of obscurity, considered of little importance to the wider public than the cause of an inconvenient infection every now and again, to high on the public agenda and never far away from the news headlines. Much has happened to better our understanding of microbiology in recent years and to reveal the intimate relationship humans share with microbes, raising awareness of their multiple roles as our friends and foes.  In this lecture, Professor Anthony Hilton will lead you on a journey to discover the invisible world of microbiology, where microbes lurk and how to avoid becoming their next victim!
