£12 million in grants to tackle superbugs in a global context
Multi-million pound grants have been awarded to four UK universities to conduct interdisciplinary research into the biological, social, cultural and economic drivers behind the development of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in low and middle income countries (LMICs). The AMR in a Global Context Consortia awards, totalling £12 million, have been jointly funded by the cross-research council AMR initiative and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Global Health Research Programme.
The four winning consortia, led by teams at the University of Bristol, the University of St. Andrews, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and the University of Glasgow, are the result of a raft of innovative development awards and workshops to improve capacity and collaboration in both the UK and partner countries.
