New Funding Awarded: A review of diagnostic methods, underlying pathogenesis and treatment behaviours for urinary tract infections (UTIs)
The following project has been awarded funding by the AMR network:
'A review of diagnostic methods, underlying pathogenesis and treatment behaviours for urinary tract infections (UTIs)'
The aim is to support and consolidate our research expertise in AMR research at Loughborough. The activities will support two areas: 1) Reducing antibiotic prescribing and misdiagnosis of UTI in older adults; 2) Understanding risk of AMR transmission from the outdoor environment to humans in Bangladesh. Both of these areas fall within the UK AMR Strategy 2013-2018 and the priorities outlined in the O’Neill reports.
The casual researcher will also help search the literature in preparation for the ESRC Theme 4 AMR grant call – Tackling antimicrobial resistance: behaviour within and beyond the healthcare setting. This will, i) raise the profile of AMR research at LU; ii) provide an evidence-base for grant applications and technology development; and iii) enhance interdisciplinary research activities.
