I've been reading scary things about the rise of antibiotic resistance, so I'm relieved to hear that antibiotics are to be the focus of the £10 million Longitude Prize. 

Antibiotics are vital for treating serious bacterial infections, but experts say lots of them aren't working any more. Hopefully the money from the prize will help find a solution.

You can find out more about antibiotic resistance in a new case in the Who am I? gallery opening on 18 July.
