The War Against Microbes

Válka proti mikrobům

In 1900, the average life expectancy was 31 years. Today, it is 67. One of the drivers of that change has been the tremendous expansion of scientific knowledge about infectious diseases. The War Against Microbes highlights these advances and the relentless efforts of Nobel laureates to unravel the mysteries of the body’s smallest adversaries.
