What are drug resistant infections? Join the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology on 25 February to meet the leading experts fighting superbugs.
About this Event
One year on from the publication of the UK government’s 5-year action plan and 20-year vision for antimicrobial resistance (AMR), this UK Parliament reception hosted by the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, will showcase the latest UK research on AMR. Highlighted research will cover antimicrobials in humans, animals and the environment, as well as focusing on reducing antibiotic use through the development of better diagnostics, greater use of vaccines and novel approaches such as bacteriophages.
As a centrepiece to the event, the Chief Medical Officer for England, Professor Chris Whitty, will give the keynote speech on UK progress towards meeting AMR targets. The event encourages knowledge transfer, as MPs and Members of the House of Lords will be invited to drop in and browse the exhibited research.
