Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) presents one of the greatest global public health threats, endangering the effective prevention and treatment of common bacterial infections as well as serious healthcare associated infections. AMR also has significant implications for the safety and success of routine medical surgeries and chemotherapies, which are dependent on the use of antibiotics as prophylactic treatment.
The Director of the Institute of Microbiology and Infection (IMI) and a Professor in Microbial Evolutionary Genomics at the University of Birmingham, Professor McNally is an infectious disease expert whose internationally renowned research group are leading the global fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
During the COVID-19 outbreak, Professor McNally was seconded to the Milton Keynes Lighthouse Lab as Infectious Disease lead at the Government’s first flagship COVID-19 testing facility.
The MRC DTP at Manchester has the great privilege of welcoming Professor Alan McNally to deliver a virtual keynote titled "What can COVID do to help combat AMR?".
This exciting and topical keynote delivered by a world leading infectious disease expert is not one to miss and will take place on Zoom on 17 May at 16:00. Everyone is welcome!
