The Academy of Medical Sciences has developed a programme that seeks to facilitate a long-term collaboration between the most talented researchers in the field of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the UK and India. 

The programme is designed to help capacity build and is being generously supported by the Yusuf and Farida Hamied Foundation. We also acknowledge the guidance of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) for England in development of the scheme. 

In addition to the Visiting Professorship scheme, it will also fund two major international scientific meetings.
