The Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) coordinates international research funding and supports collaborative action for filling knowledge gaps on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) with a One Health perspective.

NHMRC is providing up to $2 million to support Australian-based researchers who are participating as partners in transnational consortia under the JPIAMR Call for Proposals for multinational research projects on Development of innovative strategies, tools, technologies, and methods for diagnostics and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance.

NHMRC aims to fund the Australian-based components of research, where the transnational consortium has been recommended for funding by JPIAMR.
