Interdisciplinary GW4 AMR Alliance is to become the UK’s leading ‘One Health’ AMR research consortium, recognised globally

  16 June 2021

Society is facing a rise in the number of bacteria becoming resistant to existing antibiotics without a matching increase in new antibiotics or new treatments. As such, antimicrobial resistance (AMR) one of the greatest emerging threats to human health. The GW4 AMR Alliance aims to tackle this global challenge with an interdisciplinary ‘One Health’ approach and unparalleled expertise.

AMR is a complex problem that affects all of society and is driven by many interconnected factors. Antimicrobial-resistant-microbes are found in people, animals, food, and the environment (in water, soil and air). They can spread between people and animals, including from food of animal origin, and from person to person.

The mission of the GW4 AMR Alliance is:

  • To deliver world-leading research addressing key knowledge gaps within specific as well as global settings.
  • To transform strategies to tackle AMR using cross-institutional, synergistic, interdisciplinary research that maximises engagement, translation and impact.
  • To cultivate a collaborative, interdisciplinary research and training environment in which the next generation of AMR researchers will flourish.
