JPIAMR (Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance) has awarded funding to multiple new phage-related projects in the One Health space! Funded phage projects include:
- Use of phage applications to combat MRSA at the sow-piglet interface to reduce exposure of staff and contamination of the environment (PHAGE-EX);
- Phage treatment and wetland technology as intervention strategy to prevent dissemination of antibiotic resistance in surface waters (PhageLand);
- Phage therapy to reduce AMR Enterobacteria spread from a One Health perspective (Phage-Stop-AMR)!
Congratulations to all the awardees!
