Centre for Antibiotic Resistance Research, CARe

CARe - Centre for Antibiotic Resistance Research at University of Gothenburg – has a vision is to limit mortality, morbidity and socioeconomic costs related to antibiotic resistance on a global scale through research. CARe offers diverse expertise representing six faculties and a broad network of stakeholders within the health care sector and beyond to generate state-of-the-art science with the intention to support rapid revision of policies and their implementation.

  • Untreated urban waste contaminates Indian river sediments with resistance genes to last resort antibiotics

    [7 Aug 2017] Is the the title of an article just published in the journal Water Reseach. The work has been done in collaboration by CARe scientists and the Savitribai Phule Pune University in India.

  • CARe i Almedalen 2017 dokumenterat

    [12 Jul 2017] Låginkomstländer tillverkar mer och mer av våra läkemedel. Enorma utsläpp av antibiotika från tillverkningen riskerar samtidigt att driva på utvecklingen av resistenta bakterier, en av vår tids största globala samhällsutmaningar. Hur kan Sverige ta ansvar för att minska dessa utsläpp?

  • New paper published by Johan Bengtsson-Palme, Joakim Larsson and Erik Kristiansson on "Using metagenomics to investigate human and environmental resistomes"

    [3 Jul 2017] In this review, the authors outline the current state of methods for sequence handling, mapping to databases of resistance genes, statistical analysis and metagenomic assembly. In addition, they provide an overview of important considerations related to the analysis of resistance genes, and recommend some of the currently used tools and methods that are best equipped to inform research and clinical practice related to antibiotic resistance.

  • Environmental Dimensions of AMR workshop

    [30 Jun 2017] The purpose of the workshop is to explore and identify critical research needs that relate to the environmental dimensions of AMR, both in the longer term for providing input to an updated JPIAMR Strategic Research Agenda, but also in the shorter term to provide guidance for specific calls. Professor Joakim Larsson at CARe will lead the workshop which will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden 27-28 September 2017.

  • Forskare på CARe finansieras av VINNOVA

    [27 Jun 2017] Bakteriers sialinsyrametabolism innehåller möjliga kandidater för utveckling av nya antibakteriella läkemedel är titeln på projektet som VINNOVA finansierar med 5,3 MSEK. Projektledare Rosemarie Friemann från Inst. för kemi och molekylärbiologi gratuleras.

A global challenge

"This serious threat is no longer a prediction for the future, it is happening right now in every region of the world and has the potential to affect anyone, of any age, in any country"

"Without urgent, coordinated action by many stakeholders, the world is headed for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill"

(World Health Organization 2014 regarding the global challenges with antibiotic resistance)


“It is not difficult to make microbes resistant to penicillin in the laboratory by exposing them to concentrations not sufficient to kill them… There is the danger that the ignorant man may easily underdose himself and by exposing his microbes to non-lethal quantities of the drug make them resistant.”

(Alexander Flemming, Nobel Lecture, December 11, 1945)
