Article on AMR science policy and funding in Trends in Microbiology


An overview of AMR science policy and funding has recently been published in Trends in Microbiology.


The review, co-authored by Laura Marin (JPIAMR) and Arjon van Hengel (Research & Innovation, European Commission), gives an overview of AMR policy and the projects and initiatives aiming to curb the rising trend of AMR. The article is a good general reference and an introduction to the AMR community and funding organisations and opportunities.

The article can be downloaded here and is also presented by Laura Marin in this video.
