Antimicrobial resistance priority for new UK science minister | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

The UK is planning a multi-pronged approach to tackle a growing threat of resistance to antibiotic drugs that is expected to see current treatments become useless within the next two decades.

In his first announcement as science minister Greg Clark said that all seven UK research councils will work together on a strategy to address the many and varied issues related to antimicrobial resistance.
