Welcome to the McGill Antimicrobial Resistance Centre! Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the top ten global public health threats. AMR is an urgent and complex problem that poses major health and economic threats, both within Canada and worldwide. Tackling this impending public health crisis demands innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research solutions that no single sector or approach can address alone.
After 18 months of planning, several town hall meetings, countless discussions with our members, leadership meetings, pandemic-related interruptions, the new McGill AMR Centre is formally coming to life. Inspired by the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection & Immunity (MI4) and driven by the desire to mobilize the McGill community to join forces in the fight against AMR, we are excited to officially launch the McGill AMR Centre in October 2021.
Dr. Dao Nguyen is the Director of the McGill Antimicrobial Centre. The goal of this centre is to harness the expertise and creativity of our researchers to address AMR challenges and priorities through interdisciplinary research and education.
