 CommuniTY AWARENESS 

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

Title: Antibiotic Resistance: The Only War We Need To Fight

 

Speaker: KARISHMA S KAUSHIK is a  doctor, clinical microbiologist, scientist and educator. She completed her medical degree (M.B.B.S.) and residency in Clinical Microbiology (M.D.) in Pune, India and earned her Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at The University of Texas at Austin, USA. For her Ph.D. research, she worked in the critical area of antibiotic resistance, where she investigated novel strategies to overcome antibiotic resistance in bacterial populations.

Talk Outline

The talk discussed the historic and current role of antibiotics in the treatment of bacterial infections of the human body, with emphasis on the alarming rise on antibiotic resistance. Karishma elucidated approaches being taken to limit the spread of antibiotic resistance, including the key role that citizens play in this fight. She  also discussed this in context of her research work that focuses on developing alternative strategies to overcome antibiotic resistance and extend the lifetime of current antibiotics.

More About STEM Talks: There exist large gaps between scientific and medical knowledge that develops in research labs and academic institutions, what ends up being used in clinical practice and ultimately what percolates into the community as common knowledge. There is a need to make science more tangible and accessible to people from all walks of life. This would facilitate dialogue and learning in both directions and could open up exciting possibilities for both scientists and the community.Towards this goal, in collaboration with The LOFT Forum, I-SHARE Foundation is hosting a series of STEM talks in areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine.
