Overview

Explore the challenges of AMR and learn how experts work to address them

AMR is a public health emergency. Global projections predict the loss of nearly 10 million lives and up to $100 trillion lost in global production by 2050. According to the United Nations and the WHO, AMR requires immediate international action.

On this course, you will explore the historical and epidemiological aspects of antibiotics and AMR, and recognise its clinical significance.

You will explore the role of genomics in tackling AMR from research, diagnostic and surveillance perspectives, as well as the principles and practice of AMR Quality Assurance.

This course is designed for researchers and healthcare professionals interested in infectious diseases, epidemics and the problem of microbial resistance. It will help those with backgrounds in microbiology or bioinformatics to work together.

No prior learning is required, but it is recommended learners with no previous knowledge of AMR take the introductory FutureLearn course, Bacterial Genomes: Disease Outbreaks and AMR.

No previously installed software is required. You may be required to access websites to use bioinformatics tools.

This is a comprehensive course covering a whole lot of topics which are not even covered in conventional class room courses of biotechnology or microbiology at some master degree level degree offering Universities.
