Our newsletter for July 2019 is now available online.
The newsletter showcases the work the Academy has undertaken in the past month to promote biomedical and health research. Subscribers receive a monthly round-up of the main news articles the Academy had published as well as upcoming events the Academy is running to achieve its four key objectives.
This month’s newsletter announces the launch of our joint UK-India symposium report on Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR). A growing concern, with unchecked AMR estimated to cause 10 million deaths per year by 2050, the report identifies key issues across continents that must be addressed to tackle AMR-related deaths.
Other highlights include the work of Dr Niina Kohlemainen, one of our inaugural FLIER participants, who works on the importance of everyday physical activity in babies and children, and the Academy’s joint statement, urging the next leader of the Conservative party to commit to increase UK research and development spending to 2.4% of GDP by 2050.
Also in this newsletter is our #medscilife profile with Dr Soma Meran, clinical senior lecturer in nephrology from Cardiff University who tells us more about how she balances a full academic research career with being a single mother. We also showcase the talk given at our 2017 Spring Meeting by Dr Tom Wingmore on his work improving tuberculosis treatment success rates across Peru.
