Antimicrobial Resistance at University of Oxford_logo_outlined_RGB_COL.png

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has provided funding to establish 14  Health Protection Research Units (HPRU) to address key public health threats. The HPRUs are partnerships between Universities and Public Health England forming multi-disciplinary centers of excellence with a focus on collaborations and knowledge sharing.

NIHR HPRU in Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance was established at University of Oxford in April 2014 and was renewed in April 2020 for a further 5 years. Key collaborators are The European Bioinformatics Institute, University of Leeds and Animal and Plant Health Agency.

HPRU in Healthcare Associated Infections at Oxford University is led by Professor Sarah Walker who vision is to find better ways to manage and prevent threats from antimicrobial resistance and healthcare-associated infections, by detecting them faster, working out who needs protecting most and how this can be done. It consists of 4 broad Research Themes:

(1)   Populations

(2)   Interventions

(3)   Context

(4)   Sequencing
