Our vision is to find solutions to global challenges. With one of the largest groupings of microbiologists in the world, we are at the vanguard of innovative research into combatting antimicrobial and antibiotic resistance. We do this with a three-pronged approach: diagnosis, treatment and prevention.

Antimicrobial resistance is becoming an increasingly serious threat. If not addressed, by 2050 it could kill millions of people, more than from cancer or road traffic accidents. Our researchers within the Institute of Microbiology and Infection, one of the largest groupings of microbiologists in the world, are doing all they can to tackle this global issue by understanding how antibiotics work and finding new ways to prevent and treat infections.
