- 18 August 2020Our team is developing a One Health surveillance system for Fiji to identify AMR hot spots. The system will help inform intervention strategies, increase national research capacity across multiple sectors, develop risk and socio-economic evaluation frameworks, recommend sustainable AMR management policies, and educate the public. This is funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security.CSIRO, UTS, UniSA, Fiji Ministry of Health and Medical Services, Fiji Ministry of Agriculture, Fijian National Antimicrobial Resistance Committee, and Fiji National University.
- 1 July 2019This project aims to employ novel approaches to discover new-generation polymyxin antibiotics targeting the deadly Gram-negative ‘superbugs’. Novel lead molecules have been licensed to Qpex Biopharma (US) for IND-enabling evaluations with a Phase-I study aimed at 2020.Monash University and I (Jian Li, Professor, PhD) am the principal investigator. My project is currently funded by the American National Institutes of Health (NIH).

- 5 July 2018With regional, rural and metropolitan areas and a well-defined coastal strip with a relatively stable population base, the Illawarra Shoalhaven region provides an ideal population to position itself as the ‘Framingham’ of antimicrobial resistance. This large scale project specifically aims to build a longitudinal study across the Illawarra Shoalhaven region to determine all of the factors that are drivers of antimicrobial resistance and to provide a platform for test interventions.University of Wollongong, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District
- 5 July 2018WARRA was established as an initiative out of the University of Wollongong, NSW. It aims to generate evidence on antibiotic use and drivers of antimicrobial resistance, to inform future interventions targeting the Illawarra Shoalhaven region. WARRA is comprised of researchers and clinicians specialising in molecular life science, infectious diseases, psychology, nursing, pharmacy, microbiology, pathology and research/project management.University of Wollongong, Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District
- 24 April 2018The National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship (NCAS) is a health services research program that aims to generate evidence on antimicrobial use and stewardship, influence national policy to promote judicious use of antimicrobials across human and animal health, and improve knowledge and build workforce capacity among all stakeholders. NCAS’ research streams include: tertiary hospitals, rural and regional hospitals, aged care homes, general practice, and veterinary and agricultural medicine.National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship; University of Melbourne; Royal Melbourne Hospital; Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity; Monash University.
- 24 April 2018The National Antimicrobial Prescribing Survey (NAPS) is a standardised auditing tool that is designed to assist healthcare facilities to assess the quantity and quality of local antimicrobial prescribing. There are several modules available: the Hospital NAPS, Surgical NAPS and Quality Improvement NAPS for hospitals; and the Aged Care NAPS for residential age care homes. A General Practice NAPS and Hospital-in-the-Home NAPS have been piloted, and a Veterinary NAPS is in development.National Centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship; Guidance Group at the Royal Melbourne Hospital; VICNISS Coordinating Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hospital; Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care.
