Additional information about the call for submission of project ideas ‘Tackling antibiotic resistance by reusing data and increasing FAIRness’ is available at the beginning of August with a videoregistration and PowerPoint presentations of the information session on July 17th
With the prospect of pathogens becoming smarter than the drug treatments we are able to develop, antimicrobial resistance is an urgent global problem. A problem that requires a multidisciplinary international approach.
Since April 2019 we participate in GloPID-R, Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness. This network of research funding organizations from 27 countries facilitate a rapid and effective response to infectious disease outbreaks.We also participate in the GloPID-R Data Sharing working group. We're partner of the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPIAMR), who also collaborates with GloPID-R.
One of the focuses of Wageningen University & Research is Global One Health with themes that cover a broad spectrum of health and diseases in a societal context are (infectious diseases, environment, climate, society and food)
Some of these infections can no longer be effectively treated with antibiotics, which increases the risk of dying. The One Health theme supports research into the prevention and cure of infectious disease as well as zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, vaccination, diet and health.
Six consortia with top researchers from different Dutch universities have received a total of 113.8 million euros to carry out scientific research programmes in the coming years. The Minister for Education, Culture and Science (OCW), Ingrid van Engelshoven, made these funds available for research consortia that are among the best in the world in their field in carrying out groundbreaking research.
Researchers from Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) and TU Delft have developed a method for resetting a disrupted heart rhythm. They do that with gene therapy and a tiny, implantable LED lamp. The collaboration between researchers from Leiden and Delft is the unforeseen outcome of a Vidi project from ZonMw.
ZonMw selected two challenges for ‘proof of concept’ projects of Create2Solve. With Create2Solve, ZonMw makes funding available to research organisations and SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises) for the development of animal-free innovations within the program More Knowledge with Fewer Animals. This call for demand-driven innovations is now open for proposals. On 22 August, ZonMw will organise a webinar for any interested parties who want to...
On Friday 21 June, Monique den Boer from the Princess Máxima Center received the second ZonMw Open Science Boost. Radjesh Manna, director of programmes at ZonMw, handed her the prize during a surprise visit to Utrecht. Monique den Boer, Professor of Molecular Pediatric Leukemia, together with her research group, made a big contribution to the objectives of open science: responsive, transparent, and responsible science. With this boost, ZonMw...
