NIFA Invests $2.6M to Reduce Antimicrobial Resistance Across the Food Chain (A1366)

Innovative solutions to the complex problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in food and agriculture are most effectively addressed by inter-disciplinary teams of experts using a systems approach. The Mitigating Antimicrobial Resistance Across the Food Chain program area priority within NIFA’s Agriculture and Food Research Initiative is a systems-based integrated program that empowers interdisciplinary teams to develop, refine, and disseminate science-based knowledge about food and agricultural management and production practices that can mitigate or reduce the risk of antimicrobial resistance along the food chain.

Approaches can span AMR knowledge gaps to include stewardship and behavioral changes in food and agriculture. The goal is to ensure a safe, nutritious, and abundant food supply while conserving and protecting responsible use of antimicrobials across the food and agriculture domain.
