Many substances interact with the cells in our body, breaking down the walls that protect them. Substances which break down cells are often used by bacteria to cause infections. In this lunchtime lecture, Emma Comber, a PhD student in the Department of Chemistry, will describe new methods to observe how cells can be broken down in the hope that some infections can be prevented.

The Lunchtime Lecture series takes place Fridays, 12-1pm at the Leicester Adult Education College, located at 2 Wellington St, near the city end of New Walk. The lectures are delivered by current University of Leicester postgraduates and are open to the public, so there is no need to book, just come along on the day.
