Third Wellcome Connecting Science meeting on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)
Antimicrobial resistance has become a major challenge in our globalised world, and tackling it will take the combined resources and effort of researchers working across different disciplines. Technical advances in recent years continue to expand our ability to collect vast amounts of genomic information on pathogens, and a wealth of data is being collected in epidemiological and surveillance studies, including on the socio-economic burden of AMR.
This year programme will include antimicrobial discovery and global trends in AMR, in addition to the focus on genomic evidence and other tools for surveillance. It will highlight the recent advances in the rapidly emerging field of machine learning and GWAS methods to predict AMR.
We will also discuss the role of vaccines in AMR, diagnostics, and how to translate the research findings into clinical practice and policy.
This conference will bring together basic researchers, clinicians, computer scientists, and policymakers interested in pathogen genomics, epidemiology and surveillance, machine learning, as well as the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic tools and approaches.
On this blog, you can learn more about the background of this meeting and the importance of using genomics and other technologies to meet this global challenge.
