UK and China join forces to tackle antibiotic resistance

In the latest of a series of global partnerships to tackle antimicrobial resistance, the UK and China are co-funding four research hubs with more than £12 million.

The cross-council UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) antimicrobial resistance initiative will contribute £8m to the hubs, through the Newton Fund, while the National Natural Science Foundation of China will contribute 36 million yuan (£4.1m).

The four grants have been awarded to teams formed by researchers at the University of Warwick and the Chinese Academy of Sciences; the University of Bristol and the Peking University Health Science Centre; the University of Birmingham and Zhejiang University; and Cardiff University and China Agricultural University.
