Markets and pharmaceutical regulations against antimicrobial resistance

Virtual seminar every first Thursday of the month from 12:30 to 2pm

This seminar aims at presenting and discussing recent investigations conducted around medicines. Its objective is both to reflect on the possible crossovers between research on human and veterinary drugs; and to consider the contemporary transformations of pharmaceutical markets and policies, particularly in relation to the emergence of antimicrobial resistance, i.e. the over-consumption of antibiotics. Each session will be devoted to a cross-cutting issue, and will present completed or ongoing research, including investigations carried out in the framework of the ANR AMAGRI project, to which this seminar is affiliated (
