Antimicrobial Resistance: Meeting the Challenge

Submitted by anna.lindberg

On the 23 and 24 November 2017, the Society for Applied Microbiology will hold its 3rd Antimicrobial Resistance Conference, in London.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most important international issues for human and animal health and the global spread of AMR threatens to negate cures for infectious disease that began with the introduction of penicillin. Systematic misuse and overuse of antibiotics in human medicine and animal husbandry have put every individual at risk. The Society for Applied Microbiology joins the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences in responding to the global challenge to help tackle the AMR crisis.
