Discussing Penicillin

18 October 16 -- jsuess

On 26 September 2016 about 100 colleagues from across the Oxford University Museums came to the Ashmolean for the 2016 staff conference, an afternoon of lightning talks where colleagues share a taste of what they are up to with their colleagues working across all four museums in every department.

Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing some videos from the conference to give a sneak peak into some of our work.

This week's video is Discussing Penicillin given by Marie-Louise Kerr, Penicillin Exhibition Curator at the Museum of the History of Science talks about the work behind preparing the upcoming Back from the Dead exhibitions at the museum and some of the stories it will explore.

Check out the exhibition opening on 4 November.
