Inside STEM careers: investigating antimicrobial properties
Produced by Science & Plants for Schools (SAPS), these materials look at the work of the plant biologist, Julian Ma. Through seeing how natural and genetically-modified plants can produce medicines, students gain a greater understanding of the career opportunities available in plant biology.
Julian is Professor of Molecular Immunology and joint head of the Infection and Immunity Research Centre at St George’s Hospital Medical School in London. He specialises in ‘pharming’; the production of medicines by plants.
The materials include full teacher guidance and student information sheets. These cover:
* careers case study and questions
* testing herbs for antimicrobial properties
* questions on antimicrobial molecules
* comparing the antimicrobial properties of different herbs
* considering the potential for using medicines from plants
