Vice-Chancellor's Public Engagement with Research Awards

Oxford Martin School project wins University Public Engagement Award

Two Oxford Martin Fellows have been awarded a prize in the 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Public Engagement with Research Awards, which celebrate public engagement work across the University.

Dr Claas Kirchhelle and Dr Andreas Kappes, of the Oxford Martin Programme on Collective Responsibility for Infectious Disease, won the award alongside colleagues at Museum of the History of Science, for their work on the Back from the Dead – Demystifying Antibiotics exhibition. The exhibition celebrated the 75th anniversary of the first clinical trials of penicillin, explored the complex history of antibiotic development and addressed the urgent global health threat posed by antibiotic resistance, a key focus of the Programme on Collective Responsibility for Infectious Disease
