Global Health Histories Seminar 116: Antimicrobial Resistance

Wednesday 30 January 2019, 1.00PM

Speaker(s): Dr Janis K. Lazdins Helds (formerly TDR/WHO, Coordinator Product Development and Evaluation for drugs, diagnostics and vaccines for neglected tropical diseases) and Professor Jens Seeberg (Dept. of Anthropology, Aarhus University)

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a global health threat affecting all nations. Some see new antibiotics as the solution to the problem, but there needs to be a shift towards better understanding how resistance develops, evolves and transmits between bacterial species and amongst humans. This seminar brings together natural science and social science/humanities perspectives on AMR to explore these issues and consider the ways forward.
