Prevention, Early Detection and Response to Antimicrobial Resistance Pandemics

The two-day workshop “Prevention, Early Detection and Response to Antimicrobial Resistance Pandemics” explored interdisciplinary solutions to the growing global threat of antimicrobial resistance. The workshop was organized by Ramanan Laxminarayan, senior research scholar in the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI), and hosted by HMEI and the Center for Health and Wellbeing in the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. The conference agenda can be viewed here.

Videos for both days’ sessions are below with speakers for each listed.
