Emerging Zoonoses and AMR – a view from Twitter
Posted on July 9, 2018 by Ellen Hinkley
The Emerging Zoonoses and AMR Focused Meeting took place on 2 July at the University of Surrey's School of Veterinary Medicine in Guildford. We’ve turned to Twitter to look at some of the highlights of the event.
In the days leading up to the event, those attending looked forward to presenting, hearing about and discussing new research.
Looking forward to speaking @MicrobioSoc focus meeting on Emerging #Zoonoses and #AMR tomorrow #EZAMR18 - What drives the emergence of new dominant clones of #Salmonella and how they evolve during epidemic— Robert Kingsley (@DrRobKingsley) July 1, 2018
On my way from Dub to Surrey & looking forward to presenting new research on AMR & pigs from my group tomoro #EZAMR18— Fiona Walsh (@FionaWalsh14) July 1, 2018

And on the day, the talks didn't disappoint.

#EZAMR18 Second speaker is Monika Dolejska from the Czech Republic, with the intriguing title "Plasmid-mediated resistance is going wild".— Dr Dutchy McDutchFace (@dutchscientist) July 2, 2018
Even when they caused a little concern...
Mildly concerned by the amount of ESBLs I might be exposed to during long distance swimming #EZAMR18— Hilary (@tallscientist) July 2, 2018
There was a chance to get out and enjoy the sun for a group photo before lunch...
Sun’s shining in #Surrey at #EZAMR18. Picture time and lunch before heading back to hear the #offeredpapers. Join us at 2pm to hear about @WestwayHealth’s #innovative #antimicrobial #technology https://t.co/jaN4vgurdS— Cathy Abberton (@cathyabberton) July 2, 2018
...which also provided time to view and discuss the 16 posters on display.
The afternoon session was kicked off by some excellent offered paper presentations, followed by talks from invited speakers that covered bacteriology, virology and parasitology.
#EZAMR18 afternoon session; @DrRobKingsley of @TheQuadram on the success of monophasic S. Typhimurium (presence of SGI-4 genetic region involved with copper resistance/homeostasis is a major factor) has a very nice slide on S. Typhimurium genomic diversity! pic.twitter.com/vDW6g5Gwdw— Jake Turnbull (@HotchPotchJake) July 2, 2018
At the end of the meeting, there was time to reflect on the experiences of the day.
Thank you to everyone who attended and helped out at Emerging Zoonoses and AMR. We hope you enjoyed the day and look forward to seeing you at another Society event soon.
