Iowa State University will lead new, national institute to fight antimicrobial resistance
Iowa State will lead a national institute to address a global public health concern. The new Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education builds upon a partnership with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, University of Nebraska Medical Center, the University of Iowa, Mayo Clinic and many other researchers, educators, clinicians and extension personnel. APLU and AAVMC announced the institute, which stems from a recommendation by a joint task force. The Institute for Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education will be housed at Iowa State and funded by ISU and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
