The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow brings you two educational resources discussing the importance of hygiene in medicine, surgery, and everyday life!
Glasgow is the birthplace of the Antiseptic Principle, which was established by Joseph Lister at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary in the 1860s. Before this time, germs were a medical myth that were scoffed at by physicians and surgeons alike- if it couldn’t be seen by the naked eye, it didn’t exist! A lot of work was required for the science of micro-organisms to be accepted by the medical world.
Join our live session with Digital Heritage and Engagement Officer, Kirsty Earley at 2pm on March 11th, as she gives more insight into our journey with germs, from the 1800s to present day! https://curiousabout.glasgowsciencecentre.org/the-human-body/head-quarters/our-journey-with-germs/
