Antibiotic-resistant infections: we can be part of the problem or solution, say experts
UK health officials are warning of a "hidden pandemic" of antibiotic-resistant infections if people fail to act responsibly after Covid, as reported in BBC News today. School of Life Sciences experts at the forefront of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research offer their expert comment.
The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Silver Award in 2018.
As of 2021, we transformed into the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee (EDIC). While maintaining our core Athena Swan activities, we have widened our scope to take care of numerous aspects that are decisive for an inclusive and productive learning and teaching environment at SLS.
We aim to make a positive contribution to the health and welfare of others. Our research improves crops, creates new drugs and protects animals. Industry, medicine, agriculture, forensics: our researchers are alive with curiosity. Down to the level of single cells, we unlock the mysteries of life. At Warwick, our research impacts everything from microbes to entire ecosystems.
More than 80% of research in the School of Life Sciences was rated as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' in REF2014
