GW4-BristolBridge: "Systems Approaches to Antimicrobial Resistance in Different Environments"
Lunch & refreshments throughout the day will be provided.
Building on the University of Bristol's strong links with Thailand, BristolBridge and GW4 partners are hosting a workshop to investigate opportunities for funding through the anticipated second phase of the MRC-led cross-council AMR initiative, which will require global interdisciplinary teams to address AMR challenges in low to middle income countries and will be funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund.
This workshop will draw together researchers from the GW4 community and Thailand to develop collaborative projects on the theme of environmental systems and antimicrobial resistance from basic biology to economic and social science aspects.
Who should attend? Individuals from GW4 partner institutions who are researching environmental systems and/or antimicrobial resistance and who wish to collaborate in multidisciplinary grant applications.
Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter, Cabot Institute, NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Thailand WHO Collaborating Centre for AMR Prevention and Control, Mahidol University, Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Diseases Unit, Chulabhorn Research Institute, Kasetsart University, Chulalongkorn University, Naresuan University, Ubonratchathani University, Chiang Mai University.
