Centre for Antimicrobial Resistance
We bring together biologists, chemists, physicists, clinicians, mathematicians, epidemiologists, engineers and designers to focus on innovation in tackling antimicrobial resistance
Members of our Centre are located across the institution in the School of Life Sciences Research, the School of Medicine, the School of Engineering, Mathematics and Physics, the School of Computing and Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design.
Researchers within the Centre work on a variety of areas such as identifying targets for new therapeutic agents through basic research; developing innovative technologies for application in AMR research, driving leadership in antibiotic stewardship and performing drug discovery programmes to develop new antimicrobial agents.
Much of the work of the Centre is carried out in multidisciplinary collaborations between different groups within Dundee and beyond.
Professor Vicky Cowling has taken up a new position as a Senior Group Leader at the Cancer Research UK (CRUK) Beatson Institute in Glasgow.
Latest research from the lab of Dr Tony Ly describes a new proteomic analysis methodology for samples with a low cell number.
PhD Student Seraina Blümli and colleagues from the Owen-Hughes lab show the ARID1A subunit of the BAF chromatin remodelling complex organised nucleosomes flanking pluripotency transcription factors and association of the coactivator EP300.
