9 May 2017, 6.00 PM - 9 May 2017, 7.30 PM

Life Sciences building, Tyndall Avenue, University of Bristol, BS8 1TQ

Research without Borders 2017 and the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute present an inter-disciplinary discussion on Tuesday 9 May; Global Health: How can we stop superbugs?

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major health challenges that we face today. We know that increasing antibiotic use is associated with increasing levels of drug-resistant infections, but what should our response be and whose responsibility is it to ensure we tackle this global problem?

At this evening discussion an interdisciplinary group of research students from biological sciences, law and veterinary studies will set out what their research tells us about this global problem and where some of the solutions to AMR could be found.

Panel members: Juan Carlos Jimenez Castellanos, Sarah Garner, Louise Hatherall, and Gwen Rees, with Dr Matthew Avison.

Tuesday, 9 May, 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.

Free and open to all. Please register for free tickets via eventbrite.

This discussion event is part of our week-long festival of postgraduate research: Research without Borders 2017.

This event will take place in the Life Sciences Building at the University of Bristol. Our understanding is that this venue is largely accessible. For individual requirements please read the DisabledGo report or email
