Imperial College infectious diseases expert warns about drug resistance dangers

  28 June 2022

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, chaired by Greg Clark MP, called a one-off hearing to consider the threat posed by superbugs and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and their potential to become a pandemic. The inquiry had been called ahead of the World Health Organization’s emergency committee meeting on 23 June to consider whether the spread of monkeypox should be declared a public health emergency. Professor Holmes appeared in the first panel of the day alongside Lord O’Neill of Gatley, Chair of the Review on Antimicrobial Resistance (2014-2016). In March of this year, Lord O’Neill came to Imperial College to officially open the CAMO facility, highlighting the importance of its interdisciplinary research in the battle against AMR.
