The event is organised to celebrate the publication of Superbugs: An arms race against bacteria by William Hall, Anthony McDonnell and Jim O’Neill. They outline the systematic failures that have led to the threat of AMR and provide solutions to curb this growing threat in the book. The authors will be joined by  Jayasree K. Iyer, Executive Director of the Access to Medicine Foundation, Robert Budd, Keeper of Science and Medicine at the Science Museum, and Professor Peter Piot, Director of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, to discuss drug resistance and the mechanisms for limiting AMR.

Jayasree will speak on the key findings of the Foundation’s Antimicrobial Resistance Benchmark and how it incentivises pharmaceutical companies to play their part and curb AMR.
