Residential training course 2019

Fifty students from the National PhD Training Programme’s 150-strong core-funded and wider AMR training cohort undertook our second residential training week (held 12-16 August, 2019) at the University of Bristol.

The UK-wide PhD students attending the 2019 residential training course are listed below.

The three main training challenges focused on ‘Diagnosing Resistance‘, led by Prof Matthew Avison (Bristol); ‘Alternatives to Antibiotics‘, led by Prof David Dockrell (Edinburgh) and ‘Human cycling of AMR and drivers of resistance in the sewage and waste water system‘ led by Dr Andrew Singer (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology).
