A multi-scale approach to understanding the mechanisms of mobile DNA driven antimicrobial resistance transmission

Reference number: 01KI1706
Funding amount: 592.500 EUR
Funding Period: 2017 - 2020
Project leader: Dr. Orsolya Barabas
Address: European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL)

The project is part of a transnational research collaboration under the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR). The collaboration involves scientists from Germany, Sweden and Canada working together on a solution to this research question. The funding measure pursues the aim of bringing together relevant research groups with complementary expertise and resources from the participating countries. Cooperative research approaches will achieve progress in preventing, monitoring and combating antibiotic resistance which could not be achieved on a national level.
