UofG Antimicrobial Stewardship Initiative

Do you have research skills that could contribute to antimicrobial use/resistance/stewardship research and knowledge transfer?   

With increasing awareness of the need for more integrated antimicrobial resistance/use/stewardship research and pending implementation of the Pan Canadian Action Plan on Antimicrobial Resistance, the University of Guelph is well positioned to continue to play a leading role in this area.   

We are anticipating increasing opportunities for research and translation across different sectors and drawing on an interdisciplinary One Health approach. This means building on existing strengths and fostering new interdisciplinary, cross-College research to maximize our impact and funding success ability by collaborating across the life, medical, social, physical and environmental sciences.   

We are particularly interested in engaging with faculty who are not currently involved with this research but have skill sets that could be applied to this broad area. This 2 minute survey gathers information about fields of study and interest in collaborative research and knowledge translation as part of an initiative to increase communication and collaboration, build new relationships, and facilitate translation of expertise into the antimicrobial use/resistance/stewardship area.
