3rd International Symposium on the Environmental Dimension of Antibiotic Resistance

Another conference post…This time Will, Lihong, Anne and I went to EDAR3 (the 3rd International Symposium on the Environmental Dimension of Antibiotic Resistance), held from 17th – 21st May in the quaint town of Wernigerode, Germany. As you can guess from the name of the conference, it was extremely relevant to all of our research and there were some excellent presentations by some big names in the field. Will promoted his new, international, collaborative project in his presentation titled, “Class 1 integrons as markers of antibiotic resistance” and signposted the posters being presented by the rest of us:

Co-selection for antibiotic resistant bacteria at sub-inhibitory concentrations of biocides – Lihong Zhang

Human recreational exposure to antibiotic resistant bacteria in coastal bathing waters – Anne Leonard

Investigating co-selection for antibiotic resistance in the environment – Yours truly

Conference season is pretty much over now, but watch this space for the next update!
