SPARK - launched!

Exciting news! To help address antimicrobial resistance, The Pew has officially launched its Shared Platform for Antibiotic Research and Knowledge (SPARK)  - a cloud-based, virtual laboratory that enables scientists to share data and insights, learn from past research, and generate new insights into how molecules enter and stay inside of Gram-negative bacteria. 

Changing the way we talk about AMR

It’s time we were clear about how we talk about antibiotic resistance (AMR). A recent Comment piece in Nature is urging those in the antimicrobial resistance space to standardise terminology to maximise understanding of the issue and stimulate action.

“Many of the terms routinely used to describe the AMR are misunderstood, interpreted differently or loaded with unhelpful connotations.”
