Antibiotic resistance: what is it and how do we combat it?
Cansu Uluseker (Research Associate, University of Birmingham)
Antibiotics are the most important tool to cure bacterial infections in humans and animals. The over- and misuse of antibiotics have played a major role in the development, spread and prevalence of antibiotic resistance (AR) in the microbiomes of humans and animals. Using mathematical tools can provide predictions for the spread of AR and a template for laboratory and industrial systems. An improved understanding of such systems by formal models will likely contribute to our understanding of the engineering of treatment plants for diverse applications.
