2-3rd March 2017
Interdisciplinary Workshop on AMR research, Engineers House, University of Bristol
2-4th May 2017
The 3rd ABACUS meeting Qualitative Analysis Workshop
Venue: School of Public Health, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa
Participating centres (HDSS*):
Agincourt*, South Africa
INDEPTH Resource Centre Ghana
The objectives of the workshop are to:
1. create a unified approach to the analysis of the qualitative data
2. develop clear timelines for analysis and write up
3. devise a means of producing a cross-site analysis
4. Edit household survey questions

Preventing the Antibiotic Apocalypse: Public Science Evening
14th June 2017
Bridging the Gaps between EPS and Antimicrobial Resistance
15th June 2017
Join us for a full-day symposium to explore the most promising research from the Bridging the Gaps networks and beyond.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major threat to our health, dramatically reducing the effectiveness of antibiotics that have been the mainstay of modern medicine.
Traditionally, the study of AMR has been led by Medical and Life Science researchers. However, to effectively halt the rise of AMR in the population requires the combined resources of Mathematical, Engineering, Physical, Chemical, Medical and Life Sciences, in highly interdisciplinary ventures.
To respond to this need, as part of the cross-council initiative in Antimicrobial Resistance, the EPSRC launched 'Bridging the Gaps', a programme of funding awarded to 11 UK universities, to develop institutional networks focused on multidisciplinary solutions to tackle AMR.
