Trinity College, Broad Street, Oxford. OX1 3BHSign up now
Showcase your point-of-care diagnostic and discuss how you can collaborate with our expert team.
A key approach to reducing the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is to improve the appropriate usage of antibiotics in community settings. The AMR café will provide the opportunity for companies who are developing new point-of-care diagnostic technology with a community AMR focus to have a focused discussion with researchers from the NIHR Community Healthcare MIC and its strategic partners with expertise in antimicrobial stewardship and diagnosis of common infections.
Five 40-minute appointments will be available for companies to meet the panel.
Companies will have the opportunity to make a 10-minute presentation of their diagnostic followed by a discussion regarding the technology, the next steps required in evidence generation and the potential for collaboration. The aim will be to take promising technologies forward beyond the meeting into collaborative funding applications which will allow the required evidence to be generated.
We invite interested developers of diagnostics to register their interest to attend the café.
Successful applicants will be notified by 22nd November, and up to 3 members of their team will be able to attend the appointment at Trinity College Oxford.
