Antimicrobials and Food production: Should we be worried?

Date: 25th September 2018

Location: Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation High School Yards, Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LZ

Time: 09:00 - 16:45

Cost: Free*

SRUC, along with the Moredun Research Institute and the Rowett Institute will be hosting a free full-day conference on AM and food production.

Antimicrobials (AM) are largely used for preventative and therapeutic purposes in livestock. However, evidence suggests that AMs are largely used in response to inadequate health and biosecurity in animals, and careless/widespread use of AM is contributing to antimicrobial resistance. AMR is the quintessential planetary One Health challenge, threatening the well-being of animals and humans alike by reducing the effective prevention of an ever-increasing range of infections.
