Pre-announcement: International antimicrobial resistance funding opportunity

Anticipated funding opportunity launch: January 2016

The CIHR Institute of Infection and Immunity (III) is pleased to announce its participation in the Transmission Dynamics Call for Proposals of the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) to be launched in January 2016. This call will involve 20 participating countries and will provide Canadian investigators the opportunity to work with their worldwide colleagues to build an interdisciplinary, multilateral research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise.

JPIAMR is dedicated to “One Health” where multiple disciplines work together to identify and characterise the determinants that contribute to the spread of resistance in and between different reservoirs ; including animals, the environment, and people. Investigating the complex biology and epidemiology of selection and transmission of resistance is crucial in order to design preventive measures to address this public health threat.

The topic of this call is to unravel the dynamics of transmission and selection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at genetic, bacterial, animal, human, societal, and environmental levels, in order to design and evaluate preventive and intervening measures for controlling resistance.

Further information may be found on the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance Website. For more detail, please contact Élisabeth Pagé.
