Antimicrobial Resistance: A Scientist’s Perspective

Abstract: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a significant and worsening public health threat. The advancement of this threat can be described through a network of interacting ‘reservoirs of resistance’, each presenting unique surveillance and management challenges. The One Health approach to AMR recognises that any policy effort must be integrative and holistic across all reservoirs, and that it should be guided by scientific evidence. This talk aims to present an overview of the One Health approach, guided by my personal insights into the issue.

Bio: Will Matlock is a current DPhil student in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford. His work focuses on the use and development of computational tools for understanding antimicrobial resistance spread in our environment. Before this, he obtained a BSc in Mathematics from the University of York, and a MSc in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Oxford.

This internal talk is for Oxford Uehiro Centre members and associates.
