The University of Bristol has been awarded almost £600,000 by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to support researchers from a wide range of disciplines in efforts to tackle antimicrobial resistance.

The Elizabeth Blackwell Institute coordinated University of Bristol's proposal together with a multidisciplinary team including investigators from the engineering, mathematical, physical science and the biomedical science communities, led by Professor Adrian Mulholland in the School of Chemistry.

Antimicrobial resistance, especially resistance to antibiotics, is a rapidly growing global problem. A multidisciplinary approach is needed to tackle these challenges and make a step change in addressing antimicrobial resistance. BristolBridge aims to provide exciting new research opportunities for outstanding engineering and physical sciences researchers, including those who have never previously felt their work was relevant to AMR.
