Ep 12. Christian Munthe & AMR Ethics; ethical prescriptions; persisters & plasmid transfer in the gut.
Dive in and learn about the roll that ethics and philosophy can have within AMR with Dr. Christian Munthe (currently part of the Centre for Antibiotic Resistance Research -CARe-) in this month's episode of The AMR Studio. With his background in practical philosophy, Dr. Munthe works with translating thoughts into actions when it comes to the various dilemmas that AMR poses regularly. In the news section, we cover a recent study looking into how contextual factors shape distinct ethical challenges in different parts of the world; and an article showing how antibiotic persistence can be linked to plasmid transfer.
