Call for Papers ESF Research Networking Program Drug Standards, Standard Drugs Workshop 17-19 March 2011 Oslo, Norway Organisers: Christoph Gradmann (Oslo) and Flurin Condrau (Manchester) Beyond the Magic Bullet: Reframing the History of Antibiotics Antibiotics have been celebrated as a medical success story around the globe from their first distribution at the end of WWII to the present day.
