FAO selects Mississippi State as a key reference centre on AMR and aquaculture biosecurity
The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN is recognising Mississippi State University’s (MSU) expertise in fisheries and aquaculture science by making it a reference centre on aquaculture biosecurity and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The university has previously collaborated with the FAO in the areas of antimicrobial use and antimicrobial resistance (AMU/AMR), as well as aquaculture biosecurity and aquatic animal health.
MSU Provost and Executive Vice President David Shaw said in its role as an FAO Reference Centre, MSU has the scientific expertise and capacity to support the FAO’s mission to promote responsible use of antimicrobials in aquaculture to reduce AMR risk.
