A NEW FREE ONLINE COURSE OF THE INSTITUT PASTEUR

In collaboration with Paris-Diderot University

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives. Decades after their discovery, resistance due to an abusive and uncontrolled use has progressively emerged and rapidly spread. It concerns nearly all known antibiotics. This will lead to an increasing number of situations where antibiotic treatments are no longer an option. The global nature of this crisis and its substantial health and economic burdens prompt us to urgently identify new alternatives as well as to implement new policies to combat resistance.

 

This MOOC provides an overview of the
 epidemiology of resistant bacteria in different 
parts of the globe. It reviews classical and
 current methods for detection of resistance
 in clinical settings. It deals with the origins
 and molecular mechanisms of resistance 
development and dissemination. The course
 highlights adequate stewardship and nally,
discusses next generation alternatives that
 make use of genome editing and silencing 
tools.

This course is open to everyone interested in antibiotic resistance, however a bachelor of science is recommended.
