The risks to society of unrestricted antibiotic use
Professor Dame Sally Davies

click for details

The development of effective antibiotics revolutionised healthcare in the second half of the 20th Century, leading to massive falls in the threat to the public from a range of major diseases. However, the widespread use of these
agents has led to problems of resistance, so that the prospect of resurgence of illnesses such as tuberculosis is now a reality. How society tackles this is now an urgent problem that requires concerted international action.
Dame Sally Davies is the Chief Medical Officer for England.
This lecture is the inaugural Margaret Fairlie Lecture which is part of the School of Medicine Athena SWAN award celebrations, recognising commitment to advancing women’s careers in science and highlighting some of our successful females.

Please note: events will be filmed for use on the School of Medicine website and overflow theatres will be in operation.
