New £4m digital hub to tackle antimicrobial resistance announced

  21 June 2023

The Digital Health Hub for AMR aims to harness innovative digital technologies to ultimately transform antimicrobial one-health surveillance and antimicrobial stewardship, recognising the interconnectedness of AMR between humans, animals and the environment.

This Award is part of a large EPSRC investment plan of £16.5 million to create new digital healthcare hubs across England to promote knowledge and skills sharing across a range of partners including the NHS, social care providers, universities and businesses.

The Digital Health Hub for AMR – led by Professor McKendry from the London Centre for Nanotechnology and Division of Medicine UCL – will bring together a critical mass of researchers working across traditional disciplines for AMR, including computer science, data visualisation, biomedical engineering, behavioural science, environmental science, clinical and public health research, along with the NHS, UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UK CEH), charities and industry partners. The Hub aims to bring together diverse stakeholders, upskill 100+ researchers to become future leaders as well as Grand Challenge R&D exemplars and a flexible funding programme to seed new collaborations.
