The global AMR battle

  24 June 2020

In a rare case of stars aligning, a research partnership between local scientists tackling global microbial resistance and a New Zealand teatspray manufacturer has advanced both the science of sanitizer formulations and mastitis prevention.

Otago University Professor Greg Cook’s work has focused on antimicrobial resistance – a worldwide crisis temporarily overlooked during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Professor Cook’s bio demonstrates the breadth of this work in this field: “Research in my laboratory is focused on developing bacterial metabolism and energetics as a new target space for drug development to combat bacterial pathogens in humans and treat and prevent disease in food animals and plants. The goal of this work is to produce new and fast-acting drugs that will address the issues of antimicrobial resistance and persistence.”
