Event Details

The University of Bradford is raising awareness of antibiotic resistance and the impact it may have on society in a series of events for World Antibiotic Awareness Week.

The World Health Organisation campaign runs 18-24 November and ties in with the European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD) that takes place on 18 November. The day aims to raise awareness about the threat to public health of antibiotic resistance and the importance of prudent antibiotic use.

Students and staff at the University will be showcasing the research and teaching initiatives taking place in this area. The aims of the activities are to support the idea that everyone has a part to play in reducing antimicrobial resistance. Activities will include student-led information stands about Antimicrobial resistance and being an antibiotic guardian in the Students’ Union, DHEZ, STEM centre and Atrium during the week.

On Wednesday 20 November, 1-2pm, an inaugural Professor Kerr Microbiology lecture will be given by Professor Philip Howard, the first Pharmacist to become president of the British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.  This lecture is being established in memory of Professor Kevin Kerr, who used to hold an Honorary Chair with the University, and was renowned in the UK for his work on AMR and infection control.
