Meetings and Events

04.07.16 - 06.07.16 MathSys Summer School - Modelling Antimicrobial Resistance

Complexity, Mathematics Institute

The 3-day antimicrobial modelling summer school was open to all early career modellers at UK institutions.



Talks touched upon modelling in various contexts: hospital acquired infections (Robinson), public health data (Robotham), pharmacokinetics (Chappell), diagnostics (Covington), drug discovery (Cain), environmental spread of AMR (Wellington/Mead) and conflicting priorities in health programmes (Porco).

Alongside this, modellers took part in a Modelling Challenge, working in teams to look for trends in Public Health England antimicrobial usage data.

Albeit restrained by time, the modellers uncovered some interesting patterns in geography, age and different measures of deprivation.

09.06.16 Networking Meeting 3 - "Project Ideas"

15:00-18:00 Helen Martin Studio, Warwick Arts Centre

Make new connections to develop research collaboration ideas

On the 9th June, healthcare professionals and academic researchers joined minds at the Warwick Arts Centre, where they discussed ideas and networked around the theme of Antimicrobial Resistance. Setting the scene, a guest speaker from the global initiative, Antibiotic Action, provided an overview of the problem: The number of infections by resistant bacteria are increasing and counter measures are far and few between.


Attendees were split into groups and asked to creatively think about different solutions, including ‘novel therapeutics’, ‘diagnostics’, ‘behaviour change’ and ‘infection control’. In particular, they were tasked with identifying relevant stakeholders and creating a list of activities to engage with them. A major point of discussion that arose from this was the benefit of improving links between antimicrobial researchers at the university and the NIHR Clinical Research Network.
