ACS: Worms

Like Comment

It’s the last day of the conference, a sleepy atmosphere pervades the air. Or at least my head, which has up until now been filled with worms – but you’ll have to pick up a copy of Nature next week to find out why I might be investigating worms at a chemistry conference. The suspense is unbearable, I know…

I saw some talks on antibiotics today. Resistance to antibiotics has one good thing going for it, that’s for sure – chemists and biochemists are always going to be in a job. Talking to Gerry Wright after his talk really brought this home – we might find a way to beat drug-resistant bacteria, but the bugs are constantly beavering away working out ways to beat us back in return.
