New podcast on antibiotic resistance

12 November 2018

The Uppsala Antibiotic Center launches their newest outreach project, "The AMR Studio", with the occasion of the World Antibiotic Awareness Week.

The AMR Studio is a podcast dedicated to highlighting the multidisciplinary research on antimicrobial resistance that is happening around the world. Formatted around interviews with professionals working in all aspects of the topic, they aim to bring the global and trans-sectorial nature of the fight against antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance to anyone with an interest. 

In this first episode they feature a short introduction on what antibiotics and antibiotic/antimicrobial resistance are, an in-depth interview with the management team of the Uppsala Antibiotic Center and talk a bit about what the World Antibiotic Awareness Week is.

The AMR Studio team is composed by Eva Garmendia, coordinator at Uppsala Antibiotic Centre, Po-Cheng Tang, PhD student at the Department of Medical Cell Biology and Jennifer Jagdmann, PhD student at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Microbiology (from left to right).
