Ep 19. Johan Bengtsson Palme & AMR in the environment. Colistin pharmacokinetics. AB use in LMIC.


We welcome the summer at The AMR Studio! This month, we bring you a deep conversation with Dr. Johan Bengtsson Palme from the CARe center in Gothenburg about the role of the environment in the AMR problem and how his group focuses on studying it. Dive deep into this essential part of "one health" that is so frequently talked about. In the news, we feature two recent UAC articles! Our PhD student Viktor Rognås has published his work on understanding the pharmacokinetics of colistin in very sick patients, while our PhD student Gbemisola Allwell-Brown has published her first article looking into the trends of antibiotic use in 73 low- & middle-income countries. Congrats guys! We hope you enjoy this episode and see you again in July!
