Building on clear areas of success in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) research across faculties, particularly through the UKRI ‘Tackling AMR’ cross-council funding initiative, and via the global challenges research fund, this research strand aims to expand Bristol’s AMR research network, with the objective of developing an interdisciplinary research centre addressing the global challenge of AMR.
- Antibiotic drug discovery
- Understanding and blocking resistance
- Development of novel resistance diagnostics
- New approaches to infection prevention and treatment
- Antibiotic usage and behaviour change in clinical practice and livestock production
- Controlling antibiotic use through stewardship
- Understanding the drivers of AMR in human and veterinary healthcare settings
- Understanding the drivers of AMR in the community and environment
- Understanding regulatory systems relevant to drivers of AMR
- Leveraging existing success to promote Bristol AMR and attract potential collaborators, including industrial and low and middle-income countries (LMIC) collaborators, and potential 'exceptional talent' appointments.
- Building on and expanding the Bristol AMR Interdisciplinary Research Network
- Deploying funding to develop Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF)-relevant AMR research, and to translate existing AMR projects.
AMR Research Strand funding call - Spring 2019
Applications were invited for pump-priming projects, translational work and public engagement activities in the area of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) from across the University of Bristol's six faculties.
