EMBARK Webinar Monika Dolejska

We are sad to announce that unfortunately Barry McMahon will not be able to present in this fall’s seminar series due to reasons out of our and his control. However, we are happy to introduce a fantastic replacement speaker – Monika Dolejska – who will give a presentation on October 13, also on the role of wildlife in transmission of AMR. She will be joined by EMBARK’s Victor Hugo Jarquin Diaz, who will talk about AMR spread in rodents. Very exciting topic and we hope all of you will join us on October 13. Register here!

EMBARK Fall Webinars

The EMBARK webinar series continues in the fall, starting September 1. We already have three confirmed invited speakers who will present their research and be contrasted to EMBARK members presenting the work performed in the project.

These are the three already scheduled webinars:

  • September 1: Amy Pruden – “Towards coordinated local and global surveillance of antibiotic resistance at wastewater treatment plants”
    Thomas Berendonk – “AMR in WWTPs – the European perspective”
    [Register]
  • September 22: Gautam Dantas – “Predicting and Combating Biotic and Abiotic Perturbations to Diverse Microbiomes”
    Johan Bengtsson-Palme – “Antibiotic perturbations to interactions in microbial communities”
