Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

AMR Research Fund

About our Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) research

Antimicrobials have transformed human health and saved millions of lives. However, their widespread use (and misuse) has led to the emergence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that poses a potentially catastrophic threat to public health.

By integrating academic disciplines and working with stakeholders in the health, pharma, biotech, and agriculture sector we aim to develop new and effective solutions.

With your support, we will develop practical interventions which will ultimately slow people’s growing resistance to antimicrobials and potentially save millions of lives worldwide.

Antimicrobial Resistance is rapidly becoming society’s greatest health challenge. Antibiotics that have saved 100s of millions of lives are simply not working anymore... UOW’s expertise and its position in a region that is a microcosm of Australia provide a unique set of ingredients to develop solutions fast. We can’t afford to wait any longer.
