Antibiotic Use, Resistance, and the Example of Neisseria Gonorrhoeae

To address the challenge of antibiotic resistance, we need to understand the relationship between use and resistance at population levels and to develop new clinical and public health interventions. In this talk, I will discuss my group’s work on characterizing population trends in antibiotic use and resistance and on N. gonorrhoeae as a model system to investigate how genomics can improve surveillance and inform diagnostics.
