Combating antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
As a pharmacist who does research, I have witnessed the human toll of antibiotic resistance. I understand the importance of employing research to stay one step ahead of bacterial resistance. This is why our team at the Midwestern University Pharmacometrics Center of Excellence uses mathematical models to design the most effective and safest antibiotic regimens for patients. Collaboration between skilled scientists at the laboratory bench and passionate clinicians at the bedside is important. Because all of us need to be resistance fighters.
