I was privileged to be asked to contribute some thoughts on antimicrobial resistance for the December 2015 issue of the Royal College of Physicians (UK) Commentary Magazine. The article – well written by Iain Fossey – is not as interesting as the other feature article on English polymath magician John Dee’s (1527-1608) library that somehow ended up with the RCP, but arguably more important (at least in the short term). The other contributors to  the article, Ramanan Laxminarayan and Molly Miller-Petrie, are from the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP).Prof Laxminarayan is particularly well known for his economic and epidemiological contributions to the field of antimicrobial resistance.
