Tales of the Resistance

Antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) infections have been recognized globally as a significant threat to public health. In this podcast series, we're going to be talking to folks who are working to address the AMR crisis, we'll hear how they got started working with AMR and why they care about it so much...all that and more in Tales of the Resistance.Ready to learn more about AMR?

This week on Tales of the Resistance we continue our multi-week discussion on questions brought to us by our audience!  Today, we'll tackle the questions: can we fight AMR solely by the development of antibiotics, is there something I can do to reduce the risk of AMR, and what do we do if we get sick because of AMR?  This show is produced by the iAMResponsible project, a nationwide university outreach team led by Amy Schmidt at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln .

Did you know that antimicrobial resistance isn't just about antibiotics? AMR refers to genetic mutations in all kinds of microbes (bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc) that allow them to survive the effects of an antimicrobial (antibiotics, antifungal, fungicide, biocide, disinfectant, etc.) that should kill them. So yeah, AMR is everywhere.In this week's episode we're chatting with Jovana Kovacevic, from Oregon State University, she tells us a little about why she's so invested in addressing AMR within food processing systems and we get to drill down a little bit on sanitizers, their uses, and levels of "resistance" to these essential compounds.

Welcome to “Tales of the Resistance” a podcast centered around learning about antimicrobial resistance (AMR).  Hosted by three members of iAMResponsible team, a nationwide outreach effort on AMR, Mara Zelt, Amber Patterson, and Bella Breinig work together at the University of Nebraska and with the iAMResponsible team, and on this podcast – what are the odds?More manure mentoring this week on “Tales of the Resistance” as we pick the brain of Stephanie Lansing who leads the bioenergy and biotechnology lab at the University of Maryland. More affectionately known as the “poop” lab. Stephanie blows our minds as we learn about the interconnectivity of AMR to the language we use to speak about antimicrobial resistance. She also touches on how AMR has affected a member of her own family. Everyone leaves a little hungry for more insight on AMR, ready to continue our journey into the world of AMR.

Meet the Team – Eduardo Gutiérrez-Rodríguez
Mara, Amber, and Bella continue their journey learning about microbe resistance with Eduardo Gutiérrez-Rodríguez this week on “Tales of the Resistance.” Eduardo brings his expertise in AMR’s effects on produce production to the discussion today from his research and outreach with Colorado State University. In this episode we found ourselves asking if there’s anything that can be done to address AMR and facing the reality of sometimes knowing there’s a problem but not always having a solution at hand. Thank you Eduardo for joining us in today’s episode. We’ll continue to learn and grow during this series and we hope we’ll find the future of AMR will be clearer, if not always brighter.This show is produced by the iAMResponsible project, a nationwide university outreach team led by Amy Schmidt at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln .

Let’s talk about us… and microbes too.
Welcome to “Tales of the Resistance” a podcast all about resistance, not political but microbiological, in other words: antimicrobial resistance (AMR). AMR  is a serious and growing public health threat that impacts us all. We all have a story to tell about how it can and does impact our lives. So in this series members of the iAMResponsible team, a multidisciplinary group of researchers and educators from across the country working on AMR in the food chain, are going to be diving in to learn about the problem and what we can all do about it.Hosting this series are three members of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Schmidt Lab, and staff working on the iAMResponsible team, Mara Zelt, Amber Patterson, and Bella Breinig. Kicking off our first episode in “Tales of this Resistance” we have joining us… no one! Mara, Amber, and Bella discuss what iAMResponsible means to them and what they hope to gain from their podcasting debut. While exploring their understanding of the importance of AMR and how it has touched them in their personal and professional lives.
