Joseph Lister, surgeon and microscopist

Number two of a series of evening talks at the Hunterian Museum on the connections between microscopy and medicine.

Harold Ellis charts the story of Joseph Lister FRS, who followed in the footsteps of his father, a wine merchant and distinguished amateur microscopist, to develop the skills that led to a new understanding of wound infection and to the introduction of antiseptic surgery.
