Our mission is to minimise the impact of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance on human health in Liverpool, the UK and globally. We’re committed to excellence in our research activity, with diversity, integrity and equality at the essence of everything we do.

Professor William Hope

AMR is a major threat to humanity. The consequences of failure to address AMR are that modern medicine will collapse; leukaemia will not be survivable, transplantation is unfeasible, surgery will become incredibly dangerous; and otherwise, trivial infections will become potentially life-threatening.
