Program on AMR at UNC to promote Scientific Excellence (PAUSE) Seminar Series on Antimicrobial Resistance.


The Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases partners with the Department of Medicine’s Division of Infectious Diseases, the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, and the Eshelman School of Pharmacy to present a monthly lecture on topics related to antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Topics range from basic to translational and clinical science, and address mechanisms of resistance, clinical and molecular epidemiology of multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO), as well as prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes of infections caused by MDRO.

Seminars take place on the first Thursday of each month, from 9:30am-10:30am in 6004 Marsico Hall. An email with a Zoom link is sent out weekly; sign up (at left) for email notices if you haven’t already.
