Speaker(s): Professor Mark Fielder, Professor of Medical Microbiology at Kingston University; President of the Society for Applied Microbiology
Mark Fielder sits on the Parliamentary and Scientific committee and acts as an advisor for the Clinical Laboratory Sciences Institute (Veterinary antimicrobial susceptibility testing). His research team is multidisciplinary working on rapid detection systems for infectious disease diagnosis and to overcome antimicrobial resistance in clinical and veterinary settings and looking at antibiotic overspill into wild raptors.
Antibiotics are possibly one of the most important medical innovations human science has developed. However, this also means we have to understand and tackle antibiotic resistance.We can no longer think of antibiotic resistance occurring in only the human or animal sector. This challenge crosses boundaries and we need to ensure we examine the issue from a much more holistic standpoint to be able to address resistance to our antibiotics and make sure there are effective anti-infectives for appropriate use in the future, whether our patients have four legs or two! We will also examine some of the research being carried out at Kingston University to help counter these issues with antibiotic resistance.
For two weeks from 23 March to 3 April 2020, Kingston University will host a series of events to showcase its excellent research and to support and develop research activity across the university. The events will include a public lecture and exhibitions, research student workshops and conferences, training events, media workshops, and briefings led by organisations such as the UK Patent Office.
