Antibiotic Action

Antibiotic Action is an independent UK-led global initiative funded by the British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy. Antibiotic Action seeks to inform and educate all about the need for discovery, research and development of new treatments for bacterial infections.

As part of their work Antibiotic Action have put together some great antibiotic resources. They include easy to read summaries of how antibiotic resistance develops (see below), a history of antibiotic development and a collection of interesting and relevant articles.

Antibiotic Action is led by Professor Laura JV Piddock, Chair in Public Engagement and Professor of Microbiology, University of Birmingham and is collaborating with a number of global initiatives to fight antibiotic resistance.  They can be followed on Twitter @TheUrgentNeed
