This event will launch Precision AMR, providing an overview of what our aim are and how we will deliver them.

We will also be launching both our funding calls at the event, with a workshop in the afternoon to help stimulate conversation, form collaboration and help facilitate research ideas. Attendees will also have the opportunity to speak with the facilities which will support projects across the breadth of research in AMR.
