NRP 72 takes part in four international projects

Antibiotic drugs being tested to see how resistant they are to bacteria

NRP 72 is taking part in cross-border research projects that are investigating how resistant germs develop and spread.

​NRP 72 is now participating in four international research projects by supporting the relevant Swiss sub-projects. All projects are being conducted on a joint platform shared by 22 countries. The so-called Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR) aims to strengthen international research on resistance.

A total of 19 projects will be launched based on the third JPIAMR call next year. They aim to explain how resistant pathogens develop and spread to humans, animals and the environment. Researchers hope that the results of the initiative will lead to new methods of prevention.
