CAMRIA (Combatting Anti-Microbial Resistance with Interdisciplinary Approaches) is a transdisciplinary research centre in Western Norway where several partners, including permanent academic staff, post docs and PhD students, as well as clinical staff from the two hospitals, work together in one research environment towards a joint objective – addressing the urgent need to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The centre kicked off in May 2022 and has been funded through Trond Mohn Foundation, along with contributions from the University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital and Stavanger University Hospital.

CAMRIA exploits a unique set of interdisciplinary approaches, harnessing world-leading expertise in clinical microbiology, microbial genomics, bioinformatics, mathematics, social sciences and clinical medicine. Its over-arching goal is to use these inter- and trans-disciplinary approaches to respond to main challenges in AMR research.

Through the Trond Mohn Foundation, the Centre finances 3 main projects - MARGIN, HyperEvol and Media and AMR. These projects are representing different fields and are expected to give a comprehensive picture of what actions can be taken to slow down the spread of AMR together.
