Antibiotic resistance and antibiotic stewardship

Antibiotic-resistant Escherichia coli (Dr Graham Beards, CC BY-SA 4.0)

Antibiotic resistance has grown to critical levels in recent years, with few new drugs in the developmental pipeline. With the World Health Organization warning of a “post-antibiotic” era, there is an urgent need to slow down and reverse the rising tide of antibiotic resistance. My research focuses on developing tools to help ensure patients get the right antibiotic the first time—which in many cases will be no antibiotics at all.
