Babbage Lecture Theatre, (Through the Pembroke Archway), New Museums Site Downing Street, CB2 3RS

Join us for an enlightening and urgent exploration of a global health crisis that affects us all and touches every aspect of our lives: antibiotic resistance (AMR). The medicines that we depend on to treat and prevent infections are becoming less and less effective. AMR is not just a concern in hospitals; it’s a problem that broadly affects human and animal health, farming and agriculture, and the environment.

Antibiotics revolutionised healthcare in the 20th century, saving countless lives by making many common infections highly treatable and preventable. Now, in the 21st century, we are facing a future where these common infections are life-threatening once again. In 2019, over 1 million deaths were attributable to bacterial AMR.

That’s why we’re inviting you to a special science event to learn about AMR and how the One Health approach – where we recognise that human, animal and environmental health are closely connected – can help to tackle this problem.

Join us to discover how scientists are working together to find solutions for AMR, how responsible antibiotic use can protect our future and how we can all play a crucial role in this global battle. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of the solution!
