Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) at CSIRO
CSIRO aims to work with collaborators from across government, industry and research to initiate a national mission to minimise antimicrobial resistance, where the guiding light is the national AMR strategy.

AMR Summit summary
Beyond the better known calls for environmental surveillance, antimicrobial stewardship and new treatments, there were other key points that engaged the audience.
CSIRO study finds antimicrobial resistance is making UTIs more deadly
A new CSIRO study has found the spread of drug-resistant bacteria is increasing the risk of death for common infections such as urinary tract infections (UTIs)
Trained immunity to reduce antibiotic use
The livestock industry is seeking ways to reduce the likelihood of infection in cattle, subsequently, reduce the need to use antimicrobials to treat disease.
AMR Commercialisation 101 course
AMR Commercialisation 101 is an opportunity for participants to gain a foundational understanding of how to validate an AMR-mitigating idea, identify unmet market needs, undertake customer analysis and hear from a number of Australian businesses operating in adjacent areas.
Antimicrobial Resistance Summit 2021
Join us for this special event which aims to identify and share actions and approaches we need to take to achieve the greatest impact in mitigating the rise of antimicrobial resistance in Australia.
OUTBREAK platform technology is built around a One Health approach - collating and integrating data from humans, plants, animals and the environment to track and trace AMR.
