The Checkup

Episode 12: Superbugs and antimicrobial resistance, and why it’s everyone’s problem!

November 18, 2019

World Antibiotic Week runs from 18 to 24 November 2019, aiming to draw attention to the effective use of antibiotics (a type of antimicrobial) in preventing and containing antimicrobial resistance.

With World Antibiotic Week in mind, in this episode of The Checkup, BN's Emma Topen talks to Dr Mark Blaskovich from the University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience. They chat all things superbugs, why antimicrobial resistance is everyone's problem, and some novel and exciting homegrown programs and possible solutions.
