The Edinburgh AMR Forum is a network of over 100 academics and clinicians from across Edinburgh who are contributing to antimicrobial resistance research. New AMR seminar series

The Edinburgh AMR Forum has launched a new seminar series to featuring speakers from across Edinburgh.  This bi-weekly series features researchers from across Edinburgh who are tackling wide variety of issues that address antimicrobial resistance.

The first seminars in the series will be held online, but we hope to gradually move to in person events as the pandemic allows. 

To help promote collaborations and networking, the online events will be followed by  the opportunity to meet other attendees informally via wonderme.com.  The joining links for the events will be added here when available.

All seminars will be at 4 pm on Wednesday afternoons unless otherwise stated.
