My winning proposal: Designs on an AHRC healthcare grant

Design researchers Colin MacDuff and Alastair Macdonald, both from the Glasgow School of Art, work at the interface of science and the arts. Eleni Courea hears what it has taken to win AHRC support for interdisciplinary projects.

The Glasgow School of Art has been awarded a total of £600,000 by the Arts and Humanities Research Council for three interdisciplinary research projects on antimicrobial resistance. This is one-third of the funding that was available from the council’s £2.2-million Anitmicrobial Resistance in the Real World: The Indoor and Built Environment call, which opened for bids in November 2016.

GSA researchers will be leading three of 11 winning proposals. One of the projects, named RIPEN, will use design and visualisation methods to explore how nurses understand and respond to the priorities and consequences of antimicrobial resistance. Another GSA project, AMRSim, will help visualise bacteria to ensure effective prevention and control in small animal veterinary practices.
