Canada’s Global Nexus for Pandemics and Biological Threats

World Antimicrobial Awareness Week 2022

How is Canada’s Global Nexus Addressing AMR?

Meet Maya George, Gerry Wright, Marie Elliot, and Eric Brown — just a small sample of the Global Nexus researchers and trainees working to address the growing threat of AMR. Here they discuss the need for contextualize the problem as something far bigger than just a biomedical issue.

Fostering Interdisciplinary Action Against ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE

While researchers work to develop new antibiotics for drug-resistant infections, world-leading experts say the AMR crisis won’t be solved by new drugs alone. At a recent Symposium on AMR held here at McMaster, an array of experts highlighted the need for a multidisciplinary and cross-sector response to complex infectious disease threats such as AMR.
