Antimicrobial resistance is a major concern throughout the world. Since the introduction of penicillin, antibiotics have been used so widely that bacteria have adapted and are becoming more and more resistant to them. OUCRU’s research focuses on the following areas:
- Emergence of antimicrobial resistance, looking at how and why antibiotic resistance is developing.
- Preventing resistance to antimicrobials: working out how best to prevent resistance developing.
- Alternative treatment options: to find the best treatment options for antimicrobial resistant infections.
- The role of agriculture: to identify of the main drivers of antimicrobial use and resistance in animal production.
