In a nutshell: lay summaries of the projects of NRP 72

The researchers of NRP 72 "Antimicrobial Resistance" are presenting their projects in 21 lay summaries. They are online now.

Resistant genes in an unspoiled landscape, diagnostic tests with glass fibres and lasers, new methods for raising calves. The research projects of the National Research Programme "Antimicrobial Resistance" (NRP 72) cover a wide range of topics because the processes involved in the development and spread of antibiotic resistances are complex: humans, animals and the environment all play a part. For this reason, NRP 72 adopts a One Health approach that requires the collaboration of scientists from different disciplines to study the problem in all its aspects. And the aim is clear: we need to find new ways to stop the development of antibiotic resistance. As of today, the first 21 lay summaries of NRP 72 are available online.
