The discovery of the leprosy bacteria 150 years

In 1873, the Bergen doctor Gerhard Armauer identified the leprosy bacteria. This represented an international breakthrough, not only for leprosy research, but in medicine in general.

This exhibition will explore the discovery of the bacteria, the scientific advancements that made it possible, and what the new-found knowledge led to.
