Event details

This is our third Theme 3 workshop, based around 'Understanding real world interactions'. Dr David Voegeli is the lead for this theme and will chair the workshop.

This workshop is open to all members of the NAMRIP network including PhD students, Early Career Researchers, Academics and Clinicians. It provides an opportunity for members to hear about research currently underway within this theme, and share plans and ideas for future projects relating to AMR theme 3 topics such as:

  • Epidemiology, eg using research on the social, demographic and clinical factors in antibiotic use and emergence of AMR to engineer microbe-resistant surfaces/instrumentation;
  • Minimally invasive surgery, eg informing engineers of the constraints during colonoscopy and endoscopy, including end user requirements and the real world interactions associated with healthcare;
  • Effect of the environment, eg applying skin measurement techniques to assess its barrier effectiveness.


  • Update on pilot study evaluating Starstream for wound cleaning of antimicrobial resistant biolfilm infections / future direction - Dr Tom Secker
  • Update on NERC funded project investigating antimicrobial resistance in soil and the potential impact on the food chain - Dr Marcela Hernández García 

There will be time to network with NAMRIP colleagues over a free buffet lunch. To help us with catering can you please register for the event.
