OUTBREAK: A One Health real-time AMR surveillance/decision-support system

This project involves using artificial intelligence to track, trace and tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

Lead organisation(s):

The OUTBREAK consortium is led by the University of Technology Sydney. Collaborators include: CSIRO, University of Wollongong, University of South Australia, University of Newcastle, NSW Government (Department of Primary Industries and Department of Health – Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District), Sax Institute, Quadram Institute of Biosciences (UK), Southern IML Pathology (now part of Sonic Healthcare Ltd), Microba, MicroGEM (UK), Mimesis and Oracle.

Project type:
In progress

One-Health Understanding Through Bacterial Resistance to Antibiotics Knowledge (OUTBREAK) is AI-powered platform decision support system designed to track, trace, and tackle AMR. The transdisciplinary team from 15+ organisations are generating and collating new and disparate data-streams from humans, animals, plants and the environment to address the location-specific and person-specific threat of a drug-resistant infection.
