Creating a future-ready workforce to tackle antimicrobial resistance: The Monash Warwick Alliance Training Programme in Emerging Superbug Threats

The race is on to find new antimicrobial drugs to take the place of those that have become obsolete. The drive for discovery is very much in the hands of universities around the world as there is a little economic incentive for commercial laboratories to research and develop commodity pharmaceuticals. Finding new antimicrobial drugs is not simple and necessitates an interdisciplinary approach, with scientists and laboratories with different areas of expertise working jointly to tackle the problem from different angles.

Developing efficient mechanisms for energy storage to create a greener future

Rapid depletion of fossil fuels and the consequent increase in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions has led to one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time; the greenhouse effect. Finding effective ways of minimizing CO2 emissions has become a major focus for governments around the world, with the UK becoming the first major economy to pass a net zero emissions law, requiring all greenhouse gas emissions be reduced to net zero by 2050. Industry and business globally are following suit in order to meet their legal and social responsibilities.

Soil bacteria hormone discovery provides fertile ground for new antibiotics

The discovery of how hormone-like molecules turn on antibiotic production in soil bacteria could unlock the untapped opportunities for medicines that are under our very feet.

An international team of scientists working at the University of Warwick, UK, and Monash University, Australia, have determined the molecular basis of a biological mechanism that could enable more efficient and cost-effective production of existing antibiotics, and also allow scientists to uncover new antibiotics in soil bacteria.
