My Interview

Tell us about your work on antimicrobial resistance?

I am a microbiologist trying to understand antibiotic resistance at the DNA level of bacteria. How they become resistant to antibiotics and how they are able to transfer it.

How does your work make things better for patients?

Me and my group try and find out what selects for resistance and its transfer, if we know that hopefully we can slow it down or stop it.

What are the best 3 things you've seen in Primary Healthcare to combat antimicrobial resistance?

Delayed prescriptions, hand-washing campaigns, education
