Yale Antimicrobial Resistance Faculty Network
The Yale Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Faculty Network is a multidisciplinary group of researchers from across Yale University engaged in basic and translational research and public health practice within the field of AMR. Network members pursue research on acquired and intrinsic AMR, study the epidemiology of antimicrobial-resistant microbes, and seek innovative treatments for antimicrobial-resistant infections.
This newly developing network seeks to cross-educate group members on the ongoing work of network participants to 1) foster interdisciplinary collaboration and identify opportunities to advance AMR research by combining the strengths, skill sets, and expertise of group members, and 2) create opportunities for innovative adaptation and integration of AMR research approaches and methods to other microbe classes and AMR disciplines. The AMR network values the exchange of ideas between established investigators and the next generation of researchers and welcomes participation from individuals at any stage of their training and career.
Faculty Network Spotlight
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global health crises of the 21st century, threatening to undo decades of progress made in the fight against infectious diseases. Recognizing that AMR is a multidisciplinary problem that requires multidisciplinary solutions, a new faculty network focused on AMR recently came together under the YIGH Faculty Network Program.
