How do we develop drugs like antibiotics? How long does it take for such a drug to go from its inception in a research lab to use in a hospital, for example? And what people and processes are involved?


In this episode, we speak to microbiologist Dr. Vicky Savage, from INFEX Therapeutics, and Professor Colm Leonard at NICE. We look at every step of the drug development process, including drug procurements, applications, and the variety of uses within the healthcare system.


Hosted by Dr. Alex Lathbridge.


Produced by Hiren Joshi, Lizzy Ratcliffe, and Dr. Hannah Macdonald.
