Superbugs: The Fight for Our Lives

Michael Grubb Studio was appointed by London’s Science Museum to provide lighting design services for ‘Superbugs, the fight for our lives’ – which runs until the 9th November 2017.

Antibiotics have enabled us to combat diseases that were once untreatable. But bacteria have fought back, evolving into superbugs resistant to even the most powerful antibiotics.

The new exhibition explores how society is responding to the enormous challenge of antibiotic resistance, featuring scientific research from across the globe and the personal stories of those waging war on the superbugs.
