Development and spread of resistance

Many aspects of the development and spread of resistant bacteria are still unknown. To understand the complex processes involved, we need a research approach that combines human medicine, veterinary medicine, biology and environmental sciences. The results of such research will help us to disrupt the processes through which resistant bacteria are able to spread.
