  • EDAR2019 (EDAR 5) at The University of Hong Kong, June 9-14, 2019

    [10 Oct 2018] Antibiotic resistance (AMR) is an emerging global challenge of fundamental importance that is threating human health, agriculture, economies and the ecosystem. It increasingly has been recognized across society, including by scientists, doctors, engineers, governments and the general public in the recent years. Effective policies and actions to combat AMR depend on understanding this problem including the factors driving the development of AMR, such as current practices in the different use sectors, assessment of the global scope and nature of the problem, and what are the most effective mitigation and stewardship practices. The role of the environment in AMR has been listed by UNEP Frontiers 2017 as the first of six emerging issues of environmental concern.

  • New study published by the Surveillance team at CARe

    [21 Sep 2018] Sewage treatment plants are pointed out as environmental hotspots for evolution and selection of antibiotic resistant bacteria, but support from field studies is limited.

  • CARe scientist Adam Shehata receives ERC starting grant

    [21 Aug 2018] Docent Adam Shehata, Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG) at Faculty of Social Sciences, was awarded the prestigious European Research Council starting grant of 1.5 million Euros.
