Antimicrobial resistance (AR) is one of the top 10 global public health threats humanity faces. Urgent efforts are needed to reduce AR evolution and spread, and our current research are focused on finding solutions to this issue by searching for synergic effects of natural products and antimicrobials. Since zoonotic AR also can be transmitted to human pathogens through direct contact or by the food production chain, efforts against AR are addressed by focusing on the One Health strategy, working with human and animals’ pathogens. The results obtained in our research also aims at filling knowledge gaps about the mechanisms of these synergistic effects.
