A public talk on the increasing prevalence of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria in hospitals and the community is now available to view online.
Prof Angela Brueggemann spoke as part of a series of talks about research supported by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre.
Angela Brueggemann, Associate Professor at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Medicine, was at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre last month.
Antibiotics have been in use for over seven decades but when bacteria become resistant to the effect of the antibiotics then bacterial infections can become difficult to treat.
Antimicrobial resistance is now considered a serious global threat and there is an urgent need for new antimicrobial drugs, which led to Prime Minister David Cameron announcing an independent review into the issue in July of last year.
