Welcome to the McGill Antimicrobial Resistance Centre!  Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the top ten global public health threats.  It is an urgent and complex problem that poses major health and economic threats, both within Canada and worldwide. Tackling this impending public health crisis demands innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative research solutions that no single sector or approach can address alone.
