About the HDC

Aims of the centre:

Interdisciplinary, cross-scale mechanistic enzymology of bacterial cell wall research in silico, in vitro, and in vivo, with a focus upon translation and science policy to help tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Collaborate with us

Retain expertise within Warwick as a centre from which to train the next generation of researchers, nationally and internationally.


Cross-scale mechanistic enzymology with the primary focus on exploring and exploiting bacterial cell wall biosynthesis, in silico, in vitro and in vivo.

Working with Industry

Develop closer links with industry and joint research with other centres of excellence in antimicrobial research, and AMR science policy, to advance translational research.

Global Research

Research focussed by global public health needs and collaborations with centres of excellence to develop joint training and research programs to maximise impact.
