Content

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is arguably the world’s greatest health challenge. It threatens our ability to control many infectious diseases of humans and animals, both in the developed world, middle and lower income countries, impacting not just health and welfare, but also our food production systems. The epidemiology of infectious diseases is key to tackling antimicrobial resistance. This programme will equip students with a broad skill set in epidemiology of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance by combining training in epidemiological investigations, quantitative methods, laboratory-based approaches, bioinformatic tools, alongside the global ethical and legal contexts.
