- Therapeutics and Vaccines – the project will support key areas such as: the research and development of preventative measures and alternative therapeutics; interdisciplinary co-working in the antimicrobial pipeline; and the reduction of inappropriate antimicrobial exposure;
- Diagnostics and Surveillance – the project will support effective cross-sector integration of the unmet needs of those working across diagnostics and surveillance through effective knowledge sharing in the UK and internationally;
- Policy Engagement – the project aims to drive knowledge exchange between AMR experts and policymakers, while ensuring that the full diversity of voices of microbiologists working on AMR are heard, both in the UK and worldwide.
Antimicrobial resistance represents a clear and present threat to our planet’s healthcare systems and economies, but also to the environment and animal health. The only way to address that is through a joined-up approach bringing together scientists and practitioners all over the world. That is the aim of Knocking Out AMR, and it has been hugely exciting to play a prominent role in the project’s development and delivery up to this point.
