Joey and the Bug Disco

Dr Joey Shepherd, Lecturer in Oral Microbiology from the University of Sheffield gave a talk at our Science Lunchtime Seminar entitled ‘Bug Disco: Effects of acoustic vibration and ultrasound on bacteria’.  Her talk was on her research interests with ultrasound and mainly highlighted the destructive effect of cavitation and how it may be used to disrupt bacterial biofilms.  The talk was of interest to Ultrasound researchers at Birmingham and generated much discussion at the end.
