The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has announced that it is to provide £32m to support research into antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The funding is intended as capital investment in laboratories or equipment to help support the infrastructure required for further research, and will be provided via open competition launched by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The focus will be on building organisations and collaborations suited to tackling the challenge of AMR, and translating existing insights into innovations to improve public health.
Universities, NHS organisations, and non-profit research institutions are eligible to apply. The funding will last two years, and begin April 2019. The deadline for applications is Thurs 6th December.
