Event details

The resistance of some strains of bacteria to antimicrobials is well documented, but is enough being done to develop new drugs without these issues? Is there anything preventing us from making new antibiotics? What does our future look like if we can’t find new drugs?

Dr Christophe Corre is a Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Warwick.
