Optimising Innate Host Defence to Combat Antimicrobial Resistance
The SHIELD consortium is an academic partnership that brings together Principal Investigators with an interest in modulating host microbicidal mechanisms used by macrophages and neutrophils to combat antimicrobial resistance. .
The PIs have a longstanding record of collaboration, primarily drawn from the Universities of Edinburgh, Sheffield, Newcastle and Birmingham.
We are interested in forming further collaborations with both academic and industry partners to promote our goal of harnessing the potential of host responses to combat antimicrobial resistance.
