Research themes

Our fully-funded PhD students are undertaking multidisciplinary projects under the four AMR research themes below.

The following themes have been identified by the Tackling AMR – A Cross Council Initiative to provide the interdisciplinary and collaborative approach necessary to address the challenge of AMR. The large and multi-institutional research consortia funded under the UKRI cross-council AMR initiative are participating in the Medical Research Foundation National PhD Programme in AMR Research and are hosting the studentships.  

The fight against antimicrobial resistance is serious, life-threatening and global and it is a fight we must win. As academic lead for the Medical Research Foundation’s National PhD Training Programme, I look forward to leading the next generation of researchers to develop the multidisciplinary research skills required to tackle this major health problem.
