Earlier this year, four of our Society Champions represented the Microbiology Society at the Antimicrobial Resistance & Infection Biology (CURE-Infection) Network Early Career Researcher event at Cardiff University.

We caught up with Ed Cunningham-Oakes, Laura Kerr, Daniel Morse and Michael Pascoe after the event to find out a little more about their area of specialism, how they found working together for the first time and their advice for anyone who might be thinking about becoming a Society Champion.
