What does your project involve?
The project studies the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. It documents the prevalence of antibiotic resistance and gives resistance rates for reach species/ antibiotic (bug/drug) combination tested.
Why are you working there?
Isolated (bacteria) are collected by a network of laboratories in these countries of the UK and Ireland (Eire), Great Britain and British Isles.
As the study continues, BSAC can look for trends in time for resistance levels.
