These are extremely busy times for her, not only because of the corona crisis. Today she hopes to obtain her PhD after having completed her research into the rational use of antibiotics. "There is a pressing shortage of antibiotics due to the increasing resistance of bacteria. In addition to climate change and terrorism, this is also a major threat. We must, and can, use antibiotics much more wisely." For example, she studied how to effectively treat infections with fewer broad-spectrum antibiotics. She also revived the old antibiotic phosphomycin. She will defend her thesis at Leiden University (online) today. Good luck Anneke!
