This website provides information, links and resources for social scientists seeking to know more about doing research relevant to drug-resistant infection (aka antimicrobial resistance or AMR), and for scientists from other disciplines to find social science collaborators and research findings.
The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) regards social scientists as crucial to tackling the challenge of rising AMR and are committed to funding more social science research in this area.
Dr Helen Lambert, Reader in Medical Anthropology, has been appointed the ESRC AMR Research Champion.
Dr Lambert will be leading initiatives to engage social scientists from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds - including those not currently working on health-related issues - in research to address this issue.
She will also be highlighting the value of social science understanding and the need for social science research evidence to inform intervention design and policy to address AMR.
