Spotlight on: Antimicrobial resistance
Antibiotics discovery is considered one of the greatest medical achievements of the 20th century. But antibiotics are rapidly becoming ineffective. Their overuse – and misuse – in agriculture and human medicine, has led to a growing number of bacteria in humans, animals and the environment that are resistant to them. Read more about antimicrobial resistance and what MRC is doing to tackle it.
From the Atlantic Ocean to our own backyards, our researchers have been hunting high and low to help better understand and tackle superbugs. This blog highlights some of the teams carrying out this fascinating research.
