l-world insight into the different approaches used to tackle the global threat of AMR.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) poses an increasingly serious threat to global public health. It occurs when the microorganisms that cause infection survive exposure to a medicine that would normally kill them or stop their growth. But AMR is no longer a prediction for the future, it’s happening right now with drug resistant infections already causing deaths each year in Europe and the US alone.
You’ll learn through a mixture of working in a research laboratory, lectures, seminars, workshops and small-group discussions.
