Microbes, antibiotics, and the rise and threat of antibiotic resistance -- Mandy J. Ward, PH.D.
In this series of four short lectures, you will learn what you need to know about  antibiotic resistance and its relationship to antibiotic use, and about  how to be prudent about antibiotic use.

Antibiotics are only effective against bacterial infections, but it is often difficult for the layman to determine which type of microbe causes which disease.

You'll learn about  the structural and functional differences between viruses, bacteria, and higher cells, and the differences between antibiotics, vaccines and alternating therapies.  Then you''ll see the cellular structures targeted by certain groups of antibiotics.

There will be time for discussions about the rise of antibiotic resistance and its potential as a threat to public health, and about the use and misuse of antibiotics.

Mandy J. Ward  has a Ph.D. in Microbiology, performed research in molecular microbiology at UC Berkeley and Stanford, and taught Microbiology and Environmental Microbiology for 5 years at Johns Hopkins University.
