Oxford AMR Network event

The Oxford AMR Network is hosting its first event on 13 June from 3.30pm to 6pm. Three speakers will share their research on AMR, followed by a drinks reception. The event is open to all students and staff across the University. The speakers are:
Dr Andrew Farlow: Access to antibiotics
In some populations and regions of the world access to antibiotics is extremely limited. In others, antibiotics are overused. Both have consequences for the evolution of resistance. This talk will explore the role of social sciences, including economics, in tackling access challenges, and highlight the value of interdisciplinary insights for guiding future research and investments.

Prof Craig Maclean: Evolutionary drivers of antibiotic resistance
Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the most stunning examples of evolutionary adaptation. My talk will focus on how evolutionary principles can be used to understand how resistance spreads in bacterial populations, and how resistance can be lost, drawing on insights from experimental systems and real world pathogen populations.
