Antimicrobial Resistance

Rising rates of antimicrobial resistance herald a new threat.

The antimicrobial resistance research node brings together investigators from chemistry, biological sciences, medicine, geography, pharmacology, agriculture and veterinary science to help ensure the availability of effective antimicrobial therapies into the future.

Projects include:
  • identifying new tuberculosis drugs from natural products
  • monitoring drug-resistant golden-staph infections in companion animals
  • investigating optimal antibiotic regiments in the critically ill
  • exploring stakeholder attitudes to antimicrobial resistance
  • fungicide use in agriculture and drug-resistance in human fungal infections
