BEAT-AMR Webinar: Antimicrobial Resistance in Biofilms and on Biomaterials, 10th June

The BEAT-AMR Consortium are hosting their webinar, Antimicrobial Resistance in Biofilms and on Biomaterials on Thursday 10 June from 10:00 am – 17:30 pm CEST. 
This online event will bring together leaders in science, medicine and industry to discuss how antimicrobial surfaces can be used rationally to reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance evolution and spread on medical implants and clinical surfaces.
