GOSH and ICH to tackle antibiotic resistance in children
The ‘Precision AMR (anti-microbial resistance)’ initiative will be led by Prof Judy Breuer at UCL and involve researchers and clinicians from GOSH, ICH, UCL and UCL Hospital (UCLH). The ultimate aim is to improve tests for antimicrobial resistance and develop AI (artificial intelligence) methods to rapidly interpret test results.
Dr Elaine Cloutman-Green (Lead Healthcare Scientist at GOSH) will lead on the paediatric component of the project, which is dedicated to improving outcomes for children by increasing understanding of the impacts of antibiotics. New infrastructure will be developed including molecular and phenotypic technologies to examine the effects of AMR on children as well as dedicated diagnostic services and antimicrobial resistance experts and technical staff.
