World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2022

A global campaign aiming to shed light on antimicrobial resistance (AMR). AMR occurs when bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites change over time and no longer respond to medicines, making infections harder to treat. 

We are proud to be at the centre of international efforts to discover and develop new antibiotics. Explore how we are addressing the challenge of AMR for human health and encouraging best practices among the public.

AMR week at the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences

Our academics carry out research to unveil the global impact of AMR, new antibiotics, and a variety of other research in the field.

Hear about the work researchers are doing at the University of Liverpool to tackle antimicrobial resistance.
