Event Details

We are delighted to invite you to the Antimicrobial Resistance, Diagnostics and Drug Discovery workshop that is being organised by Edinburgh Infectious Diseases on Thursday 23 April 2015. 

With the current high profile of AMR, and considerable funding now available for AMR research, it is timely to showcase the research that is being carried out in Edinburgh in this field and explore how we can better work together to maximise our efforts. 

The workshop will be held in the Grant Institute on the Kings Buildings campus of the University of Edinburgh.  There will be presentations from external funders and policy makers, including Professor Dilip Nathwani, currently President of the British Society of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy, and representatives from the MRC AMR Funders Forum.  We have allowed considerable time to hear from Edinburgh researchers in different fields which impinge upon AMR, including biologists, clinicians and physical scientists.  Time has also been set aside for small group discussions to allow participants to think about how best to draw together the expertise in Edinburgh.
