Ep 25. Linus Sandegren & mobile genetic elements. Identifying resistance origins. Reimbursing ABs.


Welcome, bienvenidos, välkommna to 2021 dear listeners! In this kickstart episode after the New Years hiatus we bring you an in-depth interview with Linus Sandegren, coordinator at UAC, but also researcher and teacher at Uppsala University. Learn how his early research in a topic quite unknown led him to work on AMR, and what his group is currently studying. He also updates us on how the center has been doing over these past years and what what we can expect in the near future. In the news section, we talk about a recent work presenting a framework to study the origin of antibiotic resistance genes, and a publication reviewing the current models to tackle market failures for antimicrobials with examples from France, Germany, Sweden, the UK, and the US. We hope you enjoy this somewhat lengthy (but full of cool stuff) episode!
