On CUE Podcast: The Anti-Microbial Resistance Mediation Outreach Program (ARMOR)

May 13, 2020

The Anti-Microbial Resistance Mediation Outreach Program, also known as ARMOR, is a graduate student led international effort to develop public awareness of and research into the threat of widespread anti-microbial resistance (AMR). On today's episode of On CUE, we sit down with the team and discuss the global threat AMR poses, the origins of the ARMOR program and steps the team has taken to shed a light on an unseen issue.
