5D-AMR : Discovery Diagnostics Drugs Devices Delivery
Through Early Stage Science and Translational Pipeline
The Warwick Antimicrobial Interdisciplinary Centre (WAMIC) provides an exceptional intellectual and well-funded practical interdisciplinary hub for expertise within the university.
Alongside international partners and industry, we aim to push forward fundamental discovery towards the development of effective antimicrobials, diagnostics and interventions.
Early Stage Science
Discovery: Novel antimicrobials, Natural products (bacterial, insect and plant), and their biosynthesis, Fluid dynamics and physics of motility, Mathematical control mechanisms, Target characterization, reagent and assay development, spread and evolution of resistance, Bacterial uptake mechanisms
Diagnostics: Rapid diagnostic of disease
Delivery: Predictive modelling, epidemiology and pharmacology
Devices: Low-cost point of use spectrophotemeters
Drugs: Novel antivirals/ vaccines, Cell wall and protein biosynthesis HTS screening /industry partnerships
