Ep 28. Rachel Irwin & the visual culture of AMR. WHO report on the antibacterial pipeline. Neonatal sepsis in LMICs.
Welcome to another month at The AMR Studio. In this one, we bring you Rachel Irwin, an anthropologist that has recently focus on studying the visual culture of AMR. In this interview, you'll catch us talking about her work, but also about her path into AMR, the hurdles and happy stories, and some very interesting personal insights. In the news, we cover the latest WHO report, looking into the current antibacterial pipeline, and a very recent paper by the BARNARDS network, exploring the characteristics of resistant infections in neonates from low and middle income countries. Thank you for joining, we hope you enjoy your time with us, and that we have you back next month!
