The Big Talk: why antimicrobial resistance needs a global persistence

The Big Talk explores the big issue of antimicrobial resistance with University of Plymouth researcher Dr Tina Joshi.

Antibiotics are the foundation of modern healthcare systems, but what if they stopped working?

With 700,000 people dying each year from antibiotic-resistant infections, join molecular biologist Dr Tina Joshi as they explore antimicrobial resistance: one of the most urgent and global healthcare challenges.

Nationally recognised for her research on AMR, Tina is focused on developing point-of-care microbial diagnostics devices that would help AMR and infection control. She has provided professional commentary in the areas of infectious diseases, COVID-19 transmission and AMR in local, national and international media, and is a passionate voice in helping policymakers and the wider public enhance their understanding of AMR.
