Promoting work at the McGill AMR Centre

Superoxide dismutase activity confers (p)ppGpp mediated antibiotic tolerance to stationary-phase Pseudomonas aeruginosa was co-authored by Dorival Martins (First author), Geoffrey McKay, Gowthami Sampathkumara, Malika Khakimov, Ann English, and Dao Nguyen (Lead author) PNAS 2018

RI-MUHC and McGill researchers join forces against a major global threat to human health, and work at the new AMR Centre is underway. Under the direction of its founder and director, Dao Nguyen, MD, PhD, a diverse scientific community with experts from biomedical, engineering, and animal, natural and social sciences domains are being brought together to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Antimicrobial resistance is a very real threat to the future health of humans around the world:

Almost no new classes of antibiotics have reached the market since the 1990s, and the antibiotic discovery pipeline is dry. If we don’t act now, we could be living in a post-antibiotic world.

Dao Nguyen, MD, M.Sc.

A Student Outreach Team has also been created to help spread the news about the Centre and to ensure that students are are aware of the Centre as well.

Dao Nguyen, M.D. is an Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and a member of the Meakins-Christie Laboratories and of the RESP Program at the RI-MUHC.
