AMR detection methods India-UK Workshops

These workshops are being organized by the AMRflows team on behalf of the Programme Coordination Team (PCT) comprising the 5 projects funded from the “India-UK Tackling AMR in the Environment from Antimicrobial Manufacturing Waste” call.

The purpose is to train all researchers in the 5 projects about relevant methods across the many disciplines involved and to record the sessions for new joiners.

As these sessions will be useful to researchers outside the five projects we have made all recordings available on YouTube in our AMRflows channel
