The reddit Q&A has now finished but you can still read Professor Mark Fielder's answers to the questions asked.
Time: 4.00pm - 6.00pm
Professor of medical microbiology and Honorary General Secretary of the Society for Applied Microbiology, Mark Fielder, will be taking part in a live Q&A on reddit. Reddit is the self-styled ‘front page of the internet', a vast online community with over 170 million visitors per month.
Mark will be inviting questions from the reddit science community from 11am (BST) on Friday, and will be answering questions live from 4pm - 6pm.
Mark has invited redditors (community members) to pose questions ranging from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, to the growing resistance of infections to antibiotics, vaccination or anything to do with the spread and control of infectious diseases.
