Early Career Researcher workshop on diagnostics for Antimicrobial Resistance

20 November 2017 09:30-18:30, London, United Kingdom

The 2016 O’Neill review on Antimicrobial Resistance identified the development of new, rapid diagnostics as one of the vital interventions needed to reduce the unnecessary use of antimicrobial drugs. Realising a healthy pipeline of new diagnostic tests and technologies will require a multidisciplinary effort, bringing together researchers across scientific fields, alongside clinicians, regulators, and social scientists.

The Learned Society Partnership on Antimicrobial Resistance (LeSPAR) convened a one-day workshop for early career researchers on 20th November in London. Invited speakers explored the themes of framing the issue and pathways to success, bringing together perspectives from global health, industry, academia, metrology, behavioural science and clinical practice. Delegates participated in panel discussions and took part in a multi-disciplinary group activity, working together to design a hypothetical funding call.

LeSPAR would like to express their thanks to speakers and delegates who made the day a great success.
