Vaccination programs are known to be effective to both promote the prudent use of antibiotics and to prevent the spread of AMR. JPIAMR, in partnership with the Medical Research Council and BactiVac Network, are holding a live webinar to identify opportunities and priorities for vaccine research from an immunological perspective to a wider translational context, in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
The objectives of the webinar are:
- To identify ways in which vaccination could be used to curb AMR
- To examine the remaining gaps in the vaccines for AMR research portfolio and discuss how to tackle these
- To better understand current attitudes to vaccination programmes, following the COVID-19 pandemic
- To scope gaps and priorities for the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovations Agenda
JPIAMR is in the process of updating the JPIAMR Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda, contributing to the development of the candidate One Health AMR Partnership. This activity will support this process by allowing us to collect gaps and needs in the area of bacterial resistance.
