Edinburgh Infectious Disease Public Winter Lecture 2022

The global spread of infectious pathogenic bacteria, including those resistant to antimicrobial agents, is one of the greatest human health problems.

Frank's research has primarily targeted the association between use of antimicrobial agents to farm animals and the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance including the human health consequences.

He will speak on:  Beating the Silent Pandemic - Global Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance

Frank is an excellent speaker and his presentation will be accessible to experts and the general public alike.
