Event description
Multidisciplinary Approaches to Antimicrobial Resistance: Bench to Bedside and Beyond

About this Event

A free online symposium facilitating networking between researchers working across different disciplines with an interest in antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Organised by GW4 early career researchers, this week-long event aims to address a ‘One Health’ approach to AMR, and will comprise interactive webinars from invited speakers and selected abstracts, themed discussion forums, an online poster session and an images of research gallery.

Representatives from multiple sectors including academia, industry, human and animal health, environmental science and public policy will be invited to create an accessible, engaging and diverse event. Several broad themes will be covered to explore mechanisms of AMR, novel therapies and technologies, epidemiology, stakeholder engagement and management strategies. This event is open to all researchers with an interest in helping to understand and tackle this global issue.

Professor Matthew Avison (Professor of Molecular Bacteriology, University of Bristol)

Dr. David Verner-Jeffreys (Bacteriology team lead and AMR theme lead, CEFAS)
