BristolBridge: a multidisciplinary approach to tackling antimicrobial resistance.

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an escalating global threat. BristolBridge aims to provide exciting new research opportunities for outstanding engineering and physical sciences researchers, including those who have never previously felt their work was relevant to AMR.

The antimicrobial resistance (AMR) challenge is part of a cross-Research Council initiative to encourage researchers to work collaboratively to tackle the emergence and spread of infections caused by bacteria that are resistant to treatment by current antibiotics.

BristolBridge supports multiple pump-priming projects across the University to generate data for future research proposals.


A Network of over 200 researchers from 4 of our 6 Faculties; links with investigators in the GW4, UWE and in LMICs

Funding: Funded 17 pump-priming research projects and 1 outreach project

Training: Trained 30 postdocs and PhD students from engineering and the physical sciences in microbiology techniques

Industry links: Partnered with SMEs; industry engagement events and visits

Engaging: Engaged many members of the public and hundreds of school children through our outreach activities
