Two articles by Tim Leighton have been published in the media. These describe the scale of the problem society is facing due to antibiotic resistance, and how measures over and above the development of new antibiotics are required to tackle this global issue.


An article on the philosophy of NAMRIP was published on 15 July 2015 in 'The Conversation' entitled 'We need much more than just new antibiotics to fight superbugs'. It was authored by Tim Leighton, the chair of NAMRIP. The Conversation is an independent, not-for-profit media outlet that uses content sourced from the academic and research communities. The article cites the research of several NAMRIP members and links to their web pages.

On 22 July 2015 the article was republished in its entirety by 'Business Insider UK', which is a well-read web-based commercial news outlet that focuses on business.

Read the NAMRIP articles in 'The Conversation' and 'Business Insider UK'.
