CCC and UQ have Partnered up in Soils 4 Science

CCC has PARTNERED up with The University of Queensland and is ready to roll out the Soils 4 Science Citizen Science Project!This partnership with Soils for Science will fast-track the discovery of next-generation antibiotics. The rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and fungi – also known as ‘superbugs’ – has the potential to set medicine back almost 100 years to a pre-penicillin-era if we don’t take drastic action.Our CCC Team will be collecting over 100 soil samples for the @imbatuq researchers to help them discover microbes that could be developed into new antibiotics and other life-saving medicines.
