Faculty of Science colloquium: Antibiotic resistance – What does it mean to you and why should you care?

7 May 2014, 4.00 PM - 7 May 2014, 4.00 PM

LT2, School of Chemistry, Cantocks Close, Bristol

In the last year, there has been a lot written in newspapers and broadcast on television about antibiotic resistance and in March the Chief Medical Officer said that this was 'as big a threat to human health as climate change'. So what made her make this statement and is it true? If so, what does it really mean for the way we treat bacterial infections? In this talk I will answer these questions and illustrate with examples. I will also tell you about some of the research carried out at Birmingham on antibiotic resistance.
