Research funding available on preventing the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance
The National Institute for Health Research Antimicrobial Resistance Themed Call for research proposals covers the remits of eight participating programmes on the evaluation of public health measures, health care interventions and health services to reduce the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance and consequent morbidity. This may encompass better prevention, improved surveillance, monitoring and diagnosis as well as the more effective use of existing antibiotics, improved education and training and the development of new antimicrobial therapies and better treatment strategies. The inclusion of patient views and experiences are considered important by each participating programme.
Some of the participating NIHR managed research programmes opened in July 2013 and the others will open during the remainder of 2013. The eight programmes are:
- Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (open)
- Health Services & Delivery Research (open)
- Health Technology Assessment (open)
- Invention for Innovation (scheduled to open in October 2013)
- Programme Grants for Applied Research (scheduled to open in December 2013)
- Public Health Research (scheduled to open in August 2013)
- Research for Patient Benefit (scheduled to open in October 2013)
- NIHR Fellowships programmes (scheduled to open in October 2013)
As each programme has different deadlines and levels of funding available, please check each individual programme’s website for this information.
