Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is increasingly recognised as one of the greatest threats to global healthcare. The pages below highlight some of the research across Edinburgh Infectious Diseases that is contributing solutions to beat this urgent problem.
An area of significant research strength in Edinburgh is the investigation of alternatives to antibiotics for controlling infections, from modulation of the host immune response to development of novel vaccines
A key strand to the work in Edinburgh on AMR is understanding how antibiotic use can be governed and regulated at the global level and the challenges to implementing evidence-based policies in countries across the world led by Prof Devi Sridhar.
The Edinburgh Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Forum showcases and connects partners who are interested in Antimicrobial Resistance in and around Edinburgh to foster innovative multi-disciplinary research and collaboration.
