Quantitative approaches to antimicrobial resistance
Date: 20-21 July
Location: Edinburgh, EICC
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has been described by Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer, as a “Threat to humanity on a par with climate change”. It is an area that has recently received an injection of funds through a number of cross-council calls in the UK, and is a priority in the delivery plan of MRC, BBSRC and EPSRC. As such, AMR is a highly topical area that has a growing biophysics community across a range of areas from instrumentation for interrogating living bacteria and their interaction with the host, to the application of statistical physics to the development of resistance genes.
In the previous PoL bacteria, infection and biofilms formed the focus of successful workshops and it was clear that there is a growing biological physics community in these areas with strong existing networks spanning into biology. This workshop aims to consolidate some of those links, to build new ones, and to bring focus to bare on a clear societal challenge.

Invitation to NAMRIP Summer Conference - 5th June 2017
Join University of Southampton to hear results from the many pump priming projects that were funded from our EPSRC Network for Antimicrobial Action 'Bridging the Gap' call funding. Topics; ranging from changing behaviour in healthcare settings to how cilia in our respiratory passages can fight microbes with special sugars; will present a picture of an on-going battle against Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) where research engineers have worked alongside colleagues from social and human sciences and medicine to find solutions to this global problem.
AMR networking event at the University of Warwick on the 29 March 2017. The event is organised by the Innovative Manufacturing Global Research Priorities in conjunction with Warwick Antimicrobial Interdisciplinary Centre .
The event is an opportunity to foster collaborative links with partners from other universities who share an interest in tackling antimicrobial resistance with EPS research. It is aimed atearly career academics (Doctorate student to Assistant Professor) interested in applying engineering, manufacturing and physical sciences to tackle antimicrobial resistance, e.g. innovative materials and structures, drug delivery, smart surfaces, diagnostics . It offers the chance to win funding for collaborations, travel, internships and other ideas

BBC 4 Radio drama coming shortly – ‘Resistance’; a story about the nightmare scenario of an AMR epidemic
Interdisciplinary Research on Antimicrobial Resistance, 2-3 March 2017, Bristol
We are pleased to announce a workshop to be held on the afternoon of Thursday 2 March and all day Friday 3 March.
The workshop will provide opportunities to:
• identify research questions in AMR that require social science input in conjunction with medical, biological, veterinary or life sciences
• discuss challenges and solutions in conducting interdisciplinary research
• develop or consolidate suitable research collaborations
Participants will have opportunities to hear about existing examples of successful interdisciplinary collaboration, develop links with potential collaborators for research proposal development and explore future interdisciplinary funding opportunities. There will be a particular focus on global research. UK Research Council representatives will be present. The workshop will be relevant both to groups already working across disciplines (including one or more of the social sciences) and to researchers seeking new collaborations.

SHAMROK Workshop 3: 'Small molecules - drug delivery and discovery'
17 January 2016
Location: The Diamond, The University of Sheffield
This workshop, funded by EPSRC as part of the Sheffield Antimicrobial Resistance Network (SHAMROK) grant, will focus on the role of small molecules as antibiotics from both the clinical and scientific perspective. The network wishes to embrace engineering and physical sciences expertise to tackle AMR, by starting new collaborations and fostering new applications of methods and technologies. The workshop will include presentations from experts with experience of working in different areas of small molecule drug design and evaluation, including internationally leading scientists, healthcare professionals and industrial scientists working in R&D relevant to AMR. It will highlight some of the existing activities within Sheffield, some new developments looking for AMR application, and provide plenty of opportunities to take part in discussion sessions, networking and to introduce your work through flash presentations.
