The aim of the Leibniz Research Aliance INFECTIONS is to establish a culture of interdisciplinary research and communication across disciplines, thereby developing new strategies and methods for early warning systems, including public participation, improved outbreak management and optimized containment of the spread of pathogens. In order to achieve these goals, exemplary research projects are continuously identified, which are processed by the pooled expertise of the participating Leibniz Institutes and selected, external partners.
The focus is currently on the topic of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). In a total of 6 subprojects, measurements or samples are taken at various points along a transect in the Berlin area. The content and questions of the subprojects can be found here.
