Improving Health through Education and Research



Cardiff Metropolitan University is holding a series of seminars on the theme 'Improving Health through Education and Research'. The next seminar in this series will be entitled 'Dealing with the Problems of Increasing Antibiotic Resistance'..

Presented by the Cardiff School of Health Sciences and supported by the City of Llandaff branch of the Rotary Club of Cardiff, the event will explain the problems arising from anti-biotic resistance and analyse the research being conducted at CSHS into finding alternative and innovative ways of controlling infection.

The Cardiff Met speakers will be Professor of Microbiology, Prof. Rose Cooper, and microbiology lecturer, Dr Sarah Maddocks, who will be talking about the research work going on in the University's laboratories, while external speaker, Dr Jamie Duckers (Cardiff & Vale NHS Health Board) will explain how this research is put into practice within the NHS. 

Both Professor Cooper and Dr Maddocks are experts in their field with over 20 years combined microbiology research experience. Individually, both have researched a number of topics including the effects of Manuka honey on antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria and the effectiveness of novel anti-microbial agents against healthcare associate pathogens.

The 'Improving Health through Education and Research' event will also involve a stimulating Q&A session where audience members can participate in an informal discussion about the topic.

The seminar is open to all and will be held on Tuesday 3rd November at Cardiff Met's Llandaff Campus from 6pm to 8pm.
