THEME

Antibiotics, during manufacture, as well as administration to human patients and livestock, enter surface waters worldwide. This antibiotic pollution of the environment can lead to both ecological damage, and resistance development in environmental bacteria.

This talk will discuss causes, issues, and ways forward for this global human health risk.
