In August, the Access to Medicine Foundation published a methodology for the first Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark. This is the first independently developed framework for analysing how the pharmaceutical industry can limit AMR. We interviewed Jayasree K. Iyer (Executive Director) about how the Benchmark will work and what expects her team to find out. First of […]

Lonely bacteria are nearly ten times as likely to mutate to resist antibiotics as those living in dense populations – this is the topic of a recently published study in the PLOS journal. We interviewed the senior author of the study, Dr Chris Knight from the University of Manchester. It is very interesting to read […]

Antimicrobial Resistance research projects have different faces. We want to present an exceptional one, that includes design and visualisation. An interview with Dr. Enrique Castro-Sánchez, Academic Research Nurse at the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit in Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance…. Using various approaches including design and visualisation to imagine the implications of antibiotic […]

To stimulate the development of innovative antibiotics in the battle against drug-resistant bacteria, the Pew Charitable Trusts announced that it will create a digital platform (SPARK = Shared Platform for Antibiotic Research and Knowledge). This platform allows researchers to share data, ideas and insights. An interview with Kathy Talkington, director of Pew’s antibiotic-resistance project. I […]

Despite the importance of AS teams in optimizing the management of infections, they remain understaffed or non-existent in most countries. Two main actions are required, says Prof. Céline Pulcini (Université de Lorraine), author of a recently published Expert Commentary: First, staffing standards, based on the list of core actions that stewardship teams must implement. Second, […]
