One Health Approaches to Antimicrobial Resistance


Dr Kristen Reyher
Reader in Veterinary Epidemiology and Population Health

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research at Bristol Veterinary School is coordinated through our research group, AMR Force, initiated and led by Dr. Kristen Reyher. We work to help tackle the global issue of antimicrobial resistance through a plurality of approaches; locally, nationally and internationally.

This successful research group has secured millions of pounds worth of funding from public funders (DEFRA, University of Bristol), Research Councils UK (BBSRC, ESRC, EPSRC, MRC, NERC), industry bodies (AHDB Dairy, AHDB Beef and Sheep, MSD Animal Health, Zoetis UK, WD Farmers, Coombe Farm), Charity funders (Soil Association, Dogs Trust, The Langford Trust) and international bodies (EU Horizon 2020, Formas Sweden)

Some of the major questions addressed by our research include:

We are uniquely placed to combine our veterinary expertise with those of others working in the field of AMR through close collaborations, including social scientists, animal welfare scientists, epidemiologists, microbiologists, human medics, pharmacists, policy-makers, key stakeholders and government. We have a strong history of providing leadership, advice and policy influence in the field of AMR and work closely with the team at Bristol AMR and Bristol Bridge to coordinate efforts across the wider university.
