Advances in antimicrobial innovation

13.00, Monday 05 July 2021

This online public FORUM symposium, held in partnership with the Royal Society, explored advances in antimicrobial research as we seek to tackle the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance continues to grow as a worldwide health challenge. Pathogens are continually evolving to combat drugs given to treat potentially life-threatening diseases, rendering treatments ineffective and threatening the many advances in fighting microbes over recent decades.

As therapeutics in current use become less effective, new approaches are required. This event aims to raise awareness and interest for new antimicrobial therapeutics, the challenges faced by new drugs in entering the market, and their appropriate use in healthcare systems.

This event was free and open to the public. A full programme is available on the Royal Society's webpage. A report will be published shortly on the Royal Society website.
