Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research

Applications are now open for the first and only National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) research, funded by the Medical Research Foundation in response to the urgent action needed to halt antimicrobial resistance and to accelerate new treatments for bacterial infection.

The Medical Research Foundation is delighted to fund the UK’s only national PhD Training Programme in antimicrobial resistance research. We believe the programme will help to respond to the global health challenge that is antimicrobial resistance, including antibiotic resistance and drug resistant infections and strengthen the UK’s research capacity overall.
