St George’s researcher co-leads new international antimicrobial resistance campaign
Dr Catrin Moore, Reader in Global Health and Infectious Diseases at St George’s, is co-leading a major new project called Knocking Out AMR to raise the profile, awareness and promote feasible and eﬀective solutions to minimise antimicrobial resistance.
Dr Moore’s recent work highlighted that antibiotic resistance (AMR) is one of the most urgent global threats to public health which killed up to five million people globally in 2019.
Not only does AMR take the lives of many, but it has a devasting impact on their quality of life, the healthcare systems, economies, the environment and animal health.
The aim of the campaign is to bring together and amplify the voices of microbiologists in academia, clinical settings, industry and wider, and to engage policymakers to develop innovative solutions to minimise the increasing global threat of AMR.
