Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is seen as a growing threat to human health and economic development globally, but currently the role that the environment plays as a vector for resistant organisms and the extent to which pollution can contribute to AMR is poorly defined. There is clearly a pressing need to further understand the environmental threat and prevalence globally and to establish sustainable solutions to the problem.
In this event, you will learn about the research being carried out in Scotland and India in three key areas:
  • Knowledge and Understanding
  • Surveillance
  • Policy

Who should attend?

This event is for anyone interested in understanding the role AMR plays in the environment. Those working in agriculture, environmental sciences and industry, sustainable development, and in policy will find it useful. We would particularly like to hear from our early career researcher network too, to hear about some of research that is being carried out on AMR in the environment in both India and Scotland.

Benefits of attending

This event will give you the opportunity to hear about some of the research being carried out currently in India and Scotland on environmental AMR. There will also be an opportunity to engage with presenters and other delegates to understand how the research can be applied.
