Modelling Approaches to Guide Intelligent surveillance for the sustainable Introduction of novel ANtibiotics
Using advanced data science and machine learning techniques to support the sustainable introduction of novel class and last-resort antimicrobial drugs, that is the mission of JPIAMR-project MAGIcIAN.
The MAGIcIAN consortium brings together five academic and public health institutes from Italy, Latvia, Spain, the Netherlands, and India from the fields of AMR, mathematics, and bioinformatics. MAGIcIAN stands for Modelling Approaches to Guide Intelligent surveillance for the sustainable Introduction of novel ANtibiotics. The MAGIcIAN consortium has received funding for three years from the Joint Programming Initiative on Antimicrobial resistance (JPIAMR) to undertake this work.
We are delighted to announce the publication of a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States (PNAS), titled
The world’s antibiotic arsenal is declining in size due to the decreasing effectiveness of these drugs. The current pandemic is only making the problem worse
