We take a deep look in this week's Brainstorm podcast at how and why we use modern antibiotics
Just why is antibiotic resistance on the rise? Ella McSweeney talks guts, bacteria, venom and drugs with Sarah Delaney (Maynooth University), James Dooley (Ulster University) and Michel Dugon (NUI Galway and Irish Research Council).
