Antibiotic Awareness Session

Antibiotic_awarenessThe Infection Group is marking World Antibiotic Awareness Week by organising a special event on 19th November 2015 aimed at raising awareness around Antibiotic Resistance.

St Andrews Medical students will have the opportunity to discover some of the work of the Infection Group thanks to a poster display that will take place at the entrance of the School (just outside the lecture theatre).

Then, three members of the group are going to give presentations:

  • Stephen Gillespie: Better Diagnosis to Prevent Resistance
  • Matt Holden: Bad bugs and drugs, how has our overuse of antibiotics created the pathogens we face?
  • Katarina Oravcova: Antimicrobial resistance – examples from the laboratory and clinical practice
