Science 2

At our November meeting we were privileged to hear from two Post Doctoral and one Post Graduate researcher from the School of Life Sciences at Nottingham University.

There was a presentation from two members of a team doing research into friendly bacteria that feed on disease-causing ones, many of which are becoming resistant to our range of antibiotics. Using the friendly bacteria to combat disease and infection in humans is a target for this team.

The other presentation was about research into a very specific sub-group of microorganisms that thrive in extremes of temperature, salinity and at high levels of methane (natural gas). One strand of this is looking at how they might be used to break down plastics in landfill sites.
