Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health crisis that is growing more urgent by the day. As bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics, common infections can become deadly. In response to this crisis, we are organising a series of webinars in September and October 2023 to explore the latest research and innovations in AMR. Register here

The webinars will cover a wide range of topics, including:
• The environmental dimension of AMR (Olawale Olufemi)
• The role of small proteins in bacterial stress responses (Srujana Samhita Yadavalli)
• The use of AI and structural biology to identify new AMR genes (Peter J. Stogios)
• AMR in Ghanaian nursing homes (Emmanuel Armah)
• Phage therapy for combating AMR infections (Luís Melo)
• The potential of nanotechnology to tackle AMR (Josiah Mbote Njau)
• Opportunities in the AMR field (Yuvaraj Krishnamoorthy)
• A case study of Cefazolin in Ethiopia (Getachew Alemkere)
• Mitigating the spread of AMR through waste treatment (Sepehr Shakeri Yekta)
• New targets for antimicrobials (Johannes Thoma)
• The use of antibodies as adjuvant therapy to antibiotics (Pontus Nordenfelt)
• The importance of genomic surveillance in AMR (Margaret Lubwama)
• Innovative approaches using probiotics and prebiotics to combat AMR (David Olayinka Ishola)
• The bacterial membrane as a new target against AMR (Adéla Melcrová)

The webinars will be led by leading experts in the field of AMR, and they will provide an in-depth look at the latest research and developments. They will also offer insights into the challenges and opportunities in the fight against AMR.
The webinars are free to attend and open to anyone interested in learning more about AMR.
