New UAC activity report published
Another two years have passed and thanks to the incredible work of the students and faculty at UAC, we continue to be a consistent contributor to the field of AMR. To demonstrate our progress, we have published another biennial report for the 2020-2021 period which outlines the successes and accomplishments of the center and all those involved.
Following its founding in 2015, UAC has continued to serve as a proactive space for research, development, and education of AMR both locally and abroad. Knowing that truly impactful solutions to global issues such as this require a complete vantage, we support projects that span the entire breadth of the subject. Covering topics from microbiology and medicinal chemistry to economics and sociology, our researchers demonstrate a diverse and multidisciplinary array of expertise. This progress can be witnessed in the 25 research articles that our members have published in the period from 2020-2021.
While research forms the foundation for progress in the AMR field, UAC is also committed to public engagement and communication of science and discovery, operating on the founding principle that “Science isn’t finished until it is communicated.” UAC’s outreach work consists of events aimed at engaging the broader public (families, teachers, and students of all ages), using creative tools to achieve an interactive experience. School visits, tabling events, and educational webinars are all employed to inform both young and old about the reality of AMR and the challenges our communities will likely face going forward. Additionally, the AMR Studio, a UAC produced podcast which is the first of its kind to be dedicated solely to the topic, provides a platform where professionals can engage in dialogue and share their knowledge with anyone who wants to learn more about AMR. The podcast has seen significant success, garnering listeners from more than 50 countries.
