Resistance - Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Resistance - Film Screening and Panel Discussion
-

A documentary about the threat of antibiotic resistance. Followed by a panel discussion with University of Aberdeen and NHS Grampian staff.

Join us for the first ever Scottish screening of this thought provoking documentary. A panel of University of Aberdeen researchers and NHS Grampian staff will follow the film with an open discussion on one of the major global issues of our time. 

Seventy years ago antibiotics revolutionised medicine. Only now are we realising the potentially catastrophic consequences of these miracle drugs. The question is: have we reached a point where we must save antibiotics to save ourselves? Resistance sets out to answer that question and more.  Microscopic footage, harrowing personal stories, and expert insights propel this eye-opening and sometimes infuriating look at antibiotic resistance, starting from the first mass production of antibiotics to the rise of the superbugs in the 21st century.

The Panel will be made up of the following staff and researchers:

  • Dr Ian Gould - Professor of Medical Microbiology, Consultant Microbiologist, President: International Society of Chemotherapy
  • Dr Alexander MacKenzie - Consultant Infectious Diseases
  • Dr Bruno Lopes - Medical Microbiology 
  • Fiona McDonald - Specialist Antibiotic Pharmacist

This event is hosted by Immunology & Infectious Diseases Society in collaboration with the Public engagement with Research Unit, University of Aberdeen, and Scottish Universities Life Sciences Alliance.
