Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a threat to life and healthcare globally. With increasing levels of international concern about AMR, we need high quality research and evidence to guide action. The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is unique in the breadth of disciplines used to meet this complex challenge. These range from microbiology and clinical medicine to social studies and economics. The School’s Antimicrobial Resistance Centre, launched in 2016, will foster connections between these scientific approaches, generating innovative approaches to science and policy.
The aims of the AMR Centre are:
- Promote and facilitate high quality research into AMR that builds on and exploits disciplinary strengths across LSHTM.
- Facilitate AMR related funding responses and collaboration opportunities.
- Provide an interface for LSHTM’s AMR research for staff, public, press and wider research communities.
- Provide educational materials on AMR.
