Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Antibiotic resistance has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one of the greatest threats facing human health globally. In a world without effective antibiotics, modern medical procedures that we take for granted, such as chemotherapy or simple surgery, will become too dangerous or simply impossible to undertake, due to the threat of untreatable bacterial infections.
