About The Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance

Through our global research partnerships with the US CDC, the European CDC, the World Health Organisation and Food and Agriculture Organisation, National Institutes of Health and Public Health England we are helping lead the fight against high risk microbial pathogens with a focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) – one of the biggest threats to global health security.

We achieve our mission through a combination of structured population surveys and whole genome sequencing to generate high quality openly available surveillance data and identify high risk clones; by developing software tools and technologies that make data visualisation and interpretation accessible to all; and by investing in capacity building across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), helping to train future leaders of new national and emerging surveillance programmes.
