Learn how to train others to use genomic technologies for the surveillance of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

In collaboration with the NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Genomic Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance, Wellcome Sanger Institute, UK), we are pleased to announce this new course Train the Trainer: Capacity building for genomic surveillance of AMR in Low and Middle Income Countries

The increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens healthcare at every level and is now a major international threat to public health. Training and capacity building in whole genome sequencing (WGS) and its interpretation (bioinformatics) to provide rapid detection and assessment of newly emerging antibiotic resistant bacteria in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is crucial; as is equipping regional public health scientists and programmes with the tools and techniques to be able to transfer these skills within their own countries.
