Freya Harrison talks about our pig lung model for studying respiratory infections in this article and video made by the Society for General Microbiology. You can view the paper this was based on here.
In March, The Society for General Microbiology issued a press release at their annual general meeting about a talk we were giving about how a 10th Century recipe from Bald's Leechbook could kill Staphylococcus aureus. The worldwide response was quite amazing and here a just a few media links:

Density-dependent fitness benefits of quorum sensing [link]
Some of our work has been highlighted in the revised version of the textbook 'An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology' in the chapter 'Communication and Signals'.
