Dr Jonathan Betts, Post-doctoral Research Fellow, London, UK

I’m a passionate multidisciplinary scientist working in the area of antimicrobial resistance and chemotherapy. My research includes the identification and assessment of novel antimicrobials/antimicrobial combinations versus multidrug-resistant bacteria. My focus has been with Gram-negative bacteria including Acinetobacter baumannii, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Enterobacteriaceae, for which there is a shortfall of adequate antimicrobials. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach, to tackle the increasing threat of antimicrobial resistance, with microbiologists working with chemists and clinicians. By increasing the resources for research into new drug development, improved diagnostics and educating clinicians and the public, of when and when not to use these ‘magic bullets’, I believe we can avoid a ‘post-antibiotic era’.
