Episode 7: Meet the iAMResponsible Team – Divya Jaroni

Since antimicrobial resistance is about microbes, it is probably a good idea to sit down with a microbiologist! Divya Jaroni is a food microbiologist and professor at Oklahoma State University and in this episode, she shares with Mara and Amber her tale of resistance, how she first learned about AMR, why she’s so passionate about working to address the problem, and what she thinks are the most pressing needs to address it. All that and more on this episode of Tale of the Resistance. Continue reading “Episode 7: Meet the iAMResponsible Team – Divya Jaroni”

Episode 6: Noelle Atieno Mware

In this episode hosts Mara and Amber chat with Noelle Atieno Mware, one of their frequent collaborators during her studies at the University of Nebraska. Noelle shares her thoughts on priorities for future efforts and research related to AMR and why she has been so drawn to the work.

Episode 5: Meet the Team – Emmanuel Okello

Time to break out the shades and sunscreen everybody this week on “Tales of the Resistance” we have Emmanuel Okello from sunny University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. This week is wild as we talk not only about AMR’s effect on people but animals, more specifically livestock. Emmanuel brings a fresh perspective to the table as he combines his veterinary experience with the world of AMR. We chat a little about the future the past and everything in between, he even mentioned our lab’s home, Lincoln, Nebraska! Thanks for chatting with us this week Emmanuel we learned a lot and sure our listeners will as well. And thank you all for exploring the world of AMR with us through this mini-series.
