Episode 4. Coll De Lima Hutchison & anthropology of microbes; fecal pollution & AMR; plasmid transfer in Acinetobacter.


Welcome to a new episode of The AMR Studio! This time, we have the interview we did with Dr. Coll De Lima Hutchison from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. We chatted with him about his work in anthropology, and got a good insight into the importance of cultural and historical backgrounds when trying to change behaviours. In our news section we bring to you the latest research on the presence of antibiotic resistance genes in the environment, and the transmission of plasmids between bacteria.
