AMR is a key challenge we are all facing, and this conference is timely as the UK AMR strategy is being refreshed. We hope by connecting individuals across the spectrum of research, human and veterinary health, industry and policy that Scotland can work collectively to better address the issues surrounding AMR.
One of SULSA’s main aims is to bring the Scottish life sciences research community together, and this conference will inform and coordinate fundamental and applied research activity on AMR within SULSA universities and other relevant organisations in Scotland.
To facilitate a more connected, Scottish-wide approach SULSA will launch a seed-funding call after the meeting for registered attendees.
