antibiotic resistance

# Episode Title Description People Date
1 Fight the Resistance Learn about the world's first ever antibiotic, how the misuse of antibiotics has built the antibiotic resistance crises we are facing today and hear how scientists at Oxford University are developing new ways to improve antibiotic effectiveness. Claire Hill 02 Sep 2019
2 Creative Commons Clinical research in low and middle-income countries Professor Heiman Wertheim from our OUCRU unit in Hanoi, Vietnam, tells us about his research on drug resistant infections in low and middle-income countries. Heiman Wertheim 12 Jul 2019
3 Creative Commons Transmission dynamics of hospital acquired infections Dr Tom Crellen from MORU (Mahidol Oxford Research Unit) in Bangkok, Thailand, tells us about his research on transmission dynamics of infections aquired in hospitals. Tom Crellen 12 Jul 2019
4 Creative Commons Antibiotic prescription in primary care Dr Thomas Althaus from MORU (Mahidol Oxford Research Unit) in Bangkok, Thailand, tells us about his research on antibiotic prescription at the point of primary care. Thomas Althaus 12 Jul 2019

7 Is there a faster way to diagnose Tuberculosis? Tuberculosis is still one of the top ten causes of death worldwide, with 1.4 million people dying from TB in 2015. If your doctor suspects you have the disease it can take up to 6 weeks to get a diagnosis! Philip Fowler 26 Jun 2018
8 Creative Commons Bubble Acoustics: from listening to the ocean to cleaning medical devices and fighting antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance. By understanding how bubbles make sound, we can listen to the ocean, and track the >1 billion tonnes of atmospheric carbon that transfers between atmosphere and ocean annually when ocean waves break and trap atmospheric gas under the sea. Timothy Leighton 05 Jun 2018
9 Creative Commons Modelling bacterial drug resistance Professor Ben Cooper from MORU in Thailand uses mathematical modelling and statistical techniques to help understand the dynamics of infectious disease and evaluate potential control measures. Ben Cooper 01 Jul 2016

11 Creative Commons Computation and genetics Resistance to drugs in bacteria can be aquired by swapping genes between individual bacteria. Computer programs developed by Dr Iqbal enable doctors to predict which antibiotics will be met with drug resistance, enabling the selection of the right drug. Zamin Iqbal 07 Jan 2016
