Microbiology, Immunology & Infection: 

Accelerating diagnosis

We are researching new ways to accelerate diagnosis in order to improve patient care and reduce antimicrobial resistance.

Health needs we are tackling


How can we accelerate diagnosis to improve patient care and reduce antimicrobial resistance?

  • Rapid diagnostic tests: we are informing recommendations for the national deployment of rapid and point-of-care diagnostics to benefit triage, care, and antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention and control in hospitals and communities.


  • Electronic microbiological diagnostic systems: we are generating evidence on next-generation electronic and optoelectronic based microbiological diagnostic systems, including antimicrobial sensitivity testing to speed up diagnosis and treatment and help reduce antimicrobial resistance.
