Fostering Health and Wellbeing Lecture - Prof. Trevor Lithgow "Fighting the resistance: alternative approaches to understanding and combating drug-resistant bacteria"
By 2050 antimicrobial-resistant infections will kill >10 million people every year. The urgent, global need for minimization of the antimicrobial resistance (AMR) crisis and cures of life-threatening infections will not be met solely on the well-trodden path to the development of new drugs. The problem of AMR is with us now, and we need innovation and creative approaches to fighting drug-resistance. Our efforts in this arena will be discussed.
Host: Prof. Phil Batterham
Followed by sandwiches BioSciences 2 Tea Room. Please let the host know if you would like the opportunity to meet the speaker before or after the seminar.
