USDA NIFA Invests More Than $5M in Mitigating Antimicrobial Resistance Across the Food Chain
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) today announced an investment of more than $5 million to mitigate antimicrobial resistance across the food chain.
This investment is part of NIFA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative’s Mitigating Antimicrobial Resistance across the Food Chain grant program, which supports integrated research, education and Extension projects. Research approaches include risk assessment, antibiotic management and stewardship, advancing understanding of emerging resistant pathogens and their mechanisms for resistance, and disease control using antimicrobial alternatives. NIFA’s work contributes to the overall federal strategy to combat antimicrobial resistance as described in the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria National Action Plan 2020-2025.
Nine projects are being funded, totaling $5,117,165: see the funded projects.
