The AMR Centre was a proud sponsor of the Antibiotic Guardian Awards 2018.

The awards celebrate the work of healthcare professionals across England in tackling antimicrobial resistance and form part of the ongoing Antibiotic Guardian campaign, which is led by Public Health England.

The evening was attended by organisations from across the UK and abroad who had all submitted entries and then shortlisted for their achievements in work to help combat antibiotic resistance and protect antibiotic usage. The guest speaker for the awards was Chief Medical Officer for England, Dame Professor Sally Davies.

The awards were jointly presented by the Dr Diane Ashiru-Oredope (lead for the Antibiotic Guardian campaign and Lead Pharmacist for the AMR Programme at Public Health England); Dr Susan Hopkins (Deputy Director, National Infections Service) and Dr Bruce Warner (Deputy Chief Pharmaceutical Officer for England).

AMRC was sponsor of the Research Category Award, which was won by The University of Leeds, and presented by Carl Curran from AMRC.
