Antimicrobial resistance is a major global health issue, but how bad is it and what can be done?
Antimicrobial resistance is a major global health issue, and the problem is increasing. From personal experience and research projects I will show how antimicrobials are shaping the rapid evolution of bacterial populations, the crisis they are causing and what can be done to challenge this trajectory.
Professor Stephen Baker, Cambridge Institute for Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease
Stephen Baker is a Director of Research based in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge and an Honorary Professor at The University of Oxford. His research focuses on studying the mechanisms and epidemiological influences of antimicrobial resistant Gram-negative bacteria. His research group exploits various genomic and laboratory techniques to understand how antimicrobial resistant bacterial emerge, spread, and how best they can be combated. He has published >400 scientific articles and is a recognised name in global health with a portfolio of work ranging from typhoid fever and other enteric diseases to hospital acquired infections and zoonoses.
The lecture will be preceded by a short presentation from a CSAR PhD Award Winner.
