The article showcases the Units four Theme Lead Researchers, from across a range of disciplines and professions; Dr Elita Jauneikaite, molecular epidemiologist, Dr Tim Rawson, Infectious Diseases doctor, Dr Esmita Charani, Clinical Pharmacist and social scientist and Dr Nina Zhu, epidemiologist.  As well as highlighting the multidisciplinary nature of work into Antimicrobial Resistance, the brochure also includes activity sheets for schools and a comments box which invites students and teachers to submit questions to the team. The article is available on our website or from the Futurumcareers website.
