The Antimicrobial Resistance Knowledge Hub supports stronger coordination, knowledge sharing, and faster progress in AMR research across the Globe.
This is an open and free resource for a global community of practice (CoP) for all researchers, healthcare, and laboratory teams in all organizations working in AMR research. The AMR knowledge hub serves as a one-stop-shop for all things AMR research providing resources and information to support researchers and practitioners globally.
The "Hot Off the Press" section highlights the most recent developments, studies, and initiatives surrounding AMR. As the pace of discovery accelerates, the commitment remains to provide real-time access to the most relevant and up-to-date information.
