Antimicrobial resistance is much more a social than a technical challenge. It is a direct result of our increasingly urbanised society, fed by large scale animal farming, centralised wastewater treatment, and abuse of prescription drugs. WHO warns that the current antimicrobial crisis could bring "the end of modern medicine as we know it". Time for action!
Help! We are running out of antibiotics! Time to dig ourselves out. Biohacker, Pieter van Boheemen, invites you to Waag Society’s wet lab to learn how to hunt for new medicines.
We've learned how to hunt for new medicines, now it's time to incubate them. Come to Waag Society’s wet lab to learn how to prepare your samples.
The final step! We've prepared our samples, now it's time to measure their zones of inhibition. We invite you to Waag Society’s wet lab to learn how to test your results.
You're in luck! We've made some informative videos for interested minds.
