The World Health Organisation has identified Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) as a global human health problem. The combined threat of emerging microbial pathogens and existing strains that have developed resistance to existing antibiotics urgently requires novel interdisciplinary approaches. In this symposium, we will showcase the research activity, facilities and capability of the Strathclyde Centre for Doctoral Training in Antimicrobial Resistance. With contributions from key academic, clinical and industry groups active in this area, the event will serve as a forum for the development of new collaborations.

Who should attend?

The event will be of interest to academics, clinicians, industry, and patient groups, with a shared interest in addressing the challenge of antimicrobial resistance.  Recognising the multidisciplinary nature of the challenge, we also encourage health economists, mathematical modellers and public policy experts to bring their perspectives to the discussion.

Benefits of attending

Attendees will hear from leading experts detailing the latest technology developments for tackling antimicrobial resistance. The newly formed Strathclyde Centre for Doctoral Training in Antimicrobial Resistance presents tremendous opportunities for new project development and collaboration with external partners, so details on funding mechanisms to support such activity will be presented.
