Researchers can submit their pre-proposals for NRP 72 "Antimicrobial Resistance" until 11 January 2016.

​On 24 June 2015, the Federal Council approved the new National Research Programme "Antimicrobial Resistance" (NRP 72) and mandated the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) to conduct the NRP. The call for NRP 72 is now open.

With its holistic and interdisciplinary one-health approach, NRP 72 aims to contribute to reducing antimicrobial resistance and complications in treating infectious diseases.

The research programme is expected to increase our knowledge about the origin of resistance genes and their distribution mechanisms, develop swift diagnostic tools, analyse new antimicrobial molecules and propose intervention measures.

Projects will be selected in a two-stage process. All pre-proposals must be submitted by 11 January 2016 via the mySNF platform.
