Why antimicrobial resistance needs a global persistence – The Big Talk with Dr Tina Joshi
  • Online via Zoom

Save event
700,000 people per year die from antibiotic resistant infections, making antimicrobial resistance (AMR) the most urgent global healthcare challenge for the human species. 
Dr Tina Joshi , Associate Professor in Molecular Microbiology, shares her expert insights on why this is happening – and what we can do about it.
Recognised nationally for her research on AMR, Tina is focused on developing point-of-care microbial diagnostics devices that would help AMR and infection control. She has provided professional commentary in the areas of infectious diseases, COVID-19 transmission and AMR in local, national and international media, and is a passionate voice in helping policymakers and the wider public enhance their understanding of AMR.
All are welcome to join this free, online FUTURES2022 event and you’ll have the opportunity to ask Tina your questions at the end.

More about Dr Tina Joshi

Through her research, Dr Joshi, based in the Plymouth Institute of Health and Care Research (PIHR), is developing a diagnostic device that is able to specifically detect antimicrobial resistant genes from pathogens at point-of-care, all within the time frame of a doctor’s appointment – just five minutes. The technology aims to reduce the inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics in the GP surgery and to detect antibiotic-resistant infections rapidly. 
Eventually hoped to fit into a device the size of a mobile phone, the diagnostic technology utilises two components – a rapid microwave DNA extraction methodology, and aptamer-based sandwich assay.
