Our Ambassadors

Amine Zorgani PhD, R&D Microbiology Manager and team leader at Nuritas, leads a team of experienced Microbiologists to uncover the potential bioactivities of plant-derived peptides. Ireland-based Nuritas uses artificial intelligence to predict bioactive peptides from plant genomes to target several (ESKAPE) human pathogens and food spoiling microbes. The mission of Nuritas is to find new antimicrobial therapies from a natural origin. Amine started his fight against AMR during his Ph.D. study. When he started working with Nuritas in 2017 he realised that his journey with AMR had just started…

Shamshul Ansari PhD, currently Assistant Professor in Microbiology and Immunology at Chitwan Medical College, Bharatpur, Nepal. Shamshul obtained his PhD at Oita University Faculty of Medicine, Oita, Japan and has been teaching microbiology and infectious diseases. In research he has a keen interest in AMR and has published several papers in high impact journals. Although a challenging problem across the world AMR is more problematic in developing countries like Nepal. The lack of national guidelines regarding prescription of antibiotics and the lack of sufficient knowledge about consequences of the (mis)use of antibiotics on community level contribute to resistance development. Expert professionals need to work on these issues to combat the antimicrobial resistance development. “Use antibiotics judicially to combat the development of resistance”.
