New scheme launched to tackle antimicrobial resistance
13 March 2018
The Academy of Medical Sciences is inviting applications for the first round of the Hamied Foundation UK-India Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Visiting Professorship scheme. The programme will seek to facilitate a long-term collaboration between the most talented researchers in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the UK and India.
The Academy of Medical Sciences scheme is open to Professors or senior group leaders, based at a UK research institution, wishing to develop a collaboration with a researcher in India in the area of AMR.
Hamied Foundation Visiting Professorships will support the travel and subsistence costs of UK researchers wishing to visit India to develop long-term collaborations in this highly-important and topical field of biomedical research.
The programme will help to capacity build and is being supported by the Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation. The activities funded through these professorships will strengthen UK-India links to share knowledge, foster research collaborations and increase awareness of AMR. In addition to the Visiting Professorship scheme, it will also support two major international scientific meetings on AMR, one in the UK and one in India.
The first round is now open.
Deadline: Friday 06 April 2018, 16.00 GMT.
The first awards will be announced in summer 2018.
The threat of Antimicrobial Resistance is one of the most critical health challenges of our time. Support for Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research is a key priority area for Elizabeth Blackwell Institute. Find out more about how University of Bristol is supporting AMR through BristolBridge.
