7PM – 9PM

The discussion about an antibiotic apocalypse has bubbled among the medical community for years but has heated up with the recent appearance of a superbug that resists all types of antibiotics. Some people believe it is the overuse of antibiotics in medicine and agriculture that has lead to the trouble we are facing today, whereas there are other arguments asserting that an apocalypse is just media hype and antibiotics will continue to be the mainstay of modern medicine.  Which view is correct?

As part of ‘Flat Sunlight‘ exhibition, the Science Café is an open debate facilitated by OUCRU scientists, will examine this question under the title ‘Will antibiotics save or destroy the human race?’

*The debate is in both Vietnamese and English
