Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine
The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine is the oldest institution of its kind in the world and will celebrate its 125th Anniversary in 2023. To celebrate this, we have created Living Liverpool, an ambitious citizen science project that gives you the opportunity to hunt for the next antibiotics! In collaboration with Everton in the Community, Living Liverpool are asking schools and the public to swab sites across the city of Liverpool throughout 2023 for LSTM scientists to create a living microbial map of our city! We are excited to bring a preview of Living Liverpool to this year’s Bluedot Festival, to give you the opportunity to create a living microbial map of the festival site! Come along to our stand in the Tranquillity Base to learn more about Living Liverpool. Also join us to chat to LSTM’s Vaccine Research group and staff involved in the Liverpool Vaccine Equity Project. The team will present elements of their pop-up photo exhibition of Liverpool’s local COVID heroes which have been developed by communities for communities and reveal the motivation of the people who chose to get vaccinated in inner city Liverpool, where uptake has been low compared to other areas of the city.
