NIHR Themed Call: Announcement – Preventing the development & spread of Antimicrobial Resistance

The NIHR Antimicrobial Resistance themed call will be launching mid-July.  This call is for research into the evaluation of public health measures, health care interventions and health services to reduce the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance and consequent morbidity.

This call for research is part of a coordinated response by the NIHR to the publication of the 2nd volume of the 2011 Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer: Infections and the rise of antimicrobial resistance. It will also support the Department of Health-led UK Antimicrobial Resistance Strategy (expected to be published in summer 2013) which sets out how the challenges outlined in the report will be met.

Further information on this call will be available online at from mid-July.
