"The Learned Society Partnership on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is holding three interdisciplinary networking workshops to bring together researchers, from all career stages, who have an interest in fundamental or translational research relating to the evolution and transmission of AMR.
AMR is a global health threat. A better understanding of how different environments, and their uses, affect the evolution and transmission of resistance is key to tackling AMR. These environments include: animal and human host tissues; hospitals and urban environments; and agricultural and natural settings. The need to understand these ‘real world interactions’ is reflected by Theme 3 of the cross-research council AMR funding initiative.
Multidisciplinary research and knowledge exchange across medicine, the life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, social sciences, agricultural and veterinary sciences will be vital for closing this knowledge gap and translating research into applications to tackle AMR.
Workshops will be held in London, Dundee and Nottingham on the following dates:
- Charles Darwin House, London, Thursday 25 June 2015
- University of Dundee, Friday 3 July 2015
- MediCity, Nottingham, Tuesday 7 July 2015"
I will be at the MediCity ground tomorrow to learn from the speakers and also present my poster entitled:
Discovery of novel small-molecules for the inhibition of Pseudomonas aeruginosa quinolone signalling
