Come along to our monthly SciBar event where a new and exciting STEM presenter talks to us about their fascinating work in an informal pub-setting. Questions are encouraged! Free and open to the public, no booking required.
Talking about What?
Spores: extreme survivors
Discussion with Who? Clare Willis, PhD student in The Institute for Cell and molecular Biosciences, Newcastle University
When should I arrive? Wednesday 17th October 2018, 7.00 pm, but come earlier if you’d like food

Details, I need details! Bacterial spores can survive for thousands of years in the soil and months within the human body. They survive extreme heat, extreme cold and may evade antibiotic treatment too. But what exactly are bacterial spores and how do bacteria make them?
Look into the future….
