Monash BDI-WMU Alliance in Clinical and Experimental Biomedicine

Lead organisation(s): 
Biomedicine Discovery Institute, Monash University, Australia.
Wenzhou Medical University, China.
Project type: 
Research
Status: 
In progress
Summary: 
We have engaged with partners in Wenzhou, China to analyze the recent rise in AMR in their hospitals. In 2019, we opened the Monash BDI-WMU Alliance in Clinical and Experimental Biomedicine on the campus of Wenzhou Medical University. Initial assessments of one species of bacteria reveals that 15 years ago, less than ten patients per annum were infected, all of which responded to off the shelf antibiotics. Last year, 990 patients had infections s, with ~1 in 3 being AMR.
Timeframe: 
The project commenced two years ago, and will run for up to five more years (depending on funding availability)
