A Personal Perspective on the Global Crisis of Antimicrobial Resistance"

Wednesday, May 15th, 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM 
The Great Hall

UC San Diego’s Annual Horizons of Global Health Research Symposium is a unique opportunity for Global Health students to present their research about the diversity of global health work around the world.


Faculty and students from across campus are invited to participate and contribute to building the UC San Diego Global Health community. The conference features an undergraduate research poster session and a keynote speaker.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Steffanie A. Strathdee


Dr. Strathdee is an infectious disease epidemiologist who is Associate Dean of Global Health Sciences and Harold Simon Distinguished Professor of Medicine at UC San Diego where she now codirects the Center for Innovative Phage Applications and Therapeutics (IPATH). In 2016, Strathdee and colleagues were credited with saving her husband’s life from a deadly superbug infection using bacteriophages –viruses that attack bacteria. The case, which involved cooperation from three universities, the U.S. Navy and researchers across the globe, shows how phage therapy has potential to treat multi-drug resistant bacterial infections which are expected to kill 10 million people per year by 2050. Dr. Strathdee and her husband co-authored their memoir called The Perfect Predator: A Scientist’s Race to Save Her Husband from a Deadly Superbug. For her efforts to revitalize phage therapy in the West, she was named one of TIME magazine’s Most Influential People in Health Care in 2018.
