Episode 2. Microbiology, with Charlotte Roughton

This week we are thrilled to have Charlotte Roughton on the podcast. Charlotte is a PhD student at Newcastle University researching in microbiology. Charlotte researches the superbug C. Difficile (or C-diff to the cool kids). C. Difficile is a difficult bug to treat and Charlotte is working on finding ways to target the bug other than using antibiotics.

We chatted to Charlotte about the importance of her research and antibiotic resistance, how she got interested in science, the importance of diversity in STEM, and her love of animals.
