Antimicrobial Resistance in the Real World guidance for full proposals

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) in the Real World is a £6·5m programme under the AMR Cross-Council Initiative. This call is co-funded by NERC, the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC), and has potential co-funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The funders are inviting research grant full proposals from successful outline applicants. Only applicants successful at the outline stage are eligible to submit full proposals.

This programme aims to address the need for a greater understanding of the role of the outdoor environment and host microbiome in influencing the evolution, acquisition and spread of antibacterial resistance, and as a reservoir for resistance. The programme is restricted to antibacterials and resistant bacteria or bacterial resistance genes, of clinical and/or veterinary importance. Research supported can be based in agricultural, aquaculture, wastewater and natural environments (and their interfaces), the human and animal host microbiome, and also includes elements of the way people and human communities interact with the environment. Proposals will need to be interdisciplinary and consider appropriate partnerships to meet the requirements of this call.
