Swissnex in association with Centre for Cellular and Molecular Platforms (C-CAMP) and EURAXESS India invite to a hybrid event on the 27th July, 3.30-5.00pm IST. This time we discuss a crucial topic that may affect us all in the future: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In this Science Curio session, "Breaking the silos in AMR research", we bring together expert perspectives from AMR research and public health, from India and Switzerland. The exchanges are sure to inspire the next generation scientists and entrepreneurs to take on this challenge and excel in a collaborative way without borders.

 

About

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is on the rise, in India, in Switzerland, everywhere! Some feel it more, others less, some not at all. But eventually, it will affect us all. Addressing this pandemic has become one of the biggest challenges to human and animal health, starting from keeping up with the emerging resistance mechanisms of bacteria, innovation of new antibiotics to AMR stewardship and fully understanding its implications for public health.

To address this challenge it is crucial to work outside of silos and open channels between academia, innovation, practitioners and stewards of good practice. This Science Curio session brings together the perspectives from AMR research and public health from both India and Switzerland and inspire the next generation scientists and entrepreneurs to take on this challenge and excel in a collaborative way without borders.

This session will also serve as a teaser for an exciting lineup of funding opportunities and international meetings around this topic that Swissnex in India and its partners have in the pipeline. C-CAMP with several established programs in Antimicrobial Resistance over the years is a Swissnex partner for this event and future activities in AMR.
