Vanderbilt Initiative for the Study of Antimicrobial Resistance


Antimicrobial ResistanceType: Vanderbilt Initiative Award (ViA)

This project aims to challenge the existing paradigm and expand the understanding of the environmental drivers of antimicrobial resistance through research and teaching activities. This program will place Vanderbilt at the forefront of efforts to disseminate awareness, educate and identify effective strategies to reduce the global threat of antimicrobial resistance. The goal of the project is to increase institutional and community awareness of the problem of antimicrobial resistance, understand the environmental sources of antimicrobial resistance, design effective strategies to modify unwarranted practices, and generate an informed global framework for assessments of antimicrobial resistance and its impact on human health and our environment.
