Antimicrobial resistance (AMR)
AMR develops when bacteria, fungi or viruses are exposed to antibiotics, antifungals or antivirals. As a result, the antimicrobials become ineffective and infections may persist. In addition, medical interventions including surgery, chemotherapy and stem cell therapy may become impossible.
AMR is considered the biggest global threat of Health and Food Safety.
For Environmental experts, officials and other professionals who wish to prevent the further spreading of Antimicrobial resistance, AMR Insights offers selected, global information and data, specific education and extensive networking and partnering opportunities.
AMR Insights is for:
- Environmental Researchers at universities and research institutes
- Environmental Experts at research and consultancy firms
- Labtechnicians at environmental quality laboratories
- Senior officials at national authorities and regulatory authorities staff
- Environmental Experts at drinking water, sewage and soil remediation companies
