British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy Project Grants 2019

The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) encourages applications on topics consistent with the strategy of the Society, and from early career researchers and clinical trainees. This is a SPECIFIC CALL FOR PROJECT GRANT APPLICATIONS (to be awarded in May 2019). The BSAC is giving priority to the following topics of research for 2019  Project grant applications:

  • Diagnostics:
    • More optimal/effective use of antimicrobials through PK/PD in clinical practice
    • Prognostic markers of bacterial infection (i.e. when is an antibacterial indicated?)
    • Prognostic markers of infection with microorganisms resistant to first-line empirical treatment regimens (i.e. when is a broad-spectrum antibacterial indicated?)
    • Can better use of existing or new laboratory diagnostics including biomarkers support better stewardship across healthcare communities, with special reference to Virology?
  • Antimicrobial Stewardship:
    • The impact of resistance or antimicrobial consumption surveillance on patient outcomes in community, long term care and acute facilities
    • Innovative promotion of behaviour change science in prescribing in all healthcare settings
    • Impact of educational solutions / guidelines etc. on stewardship practice / infection treatment outcomes [could be systematic review]
    • Impact of sepsis campaigns on optimal antibiotic use / stewardship or use of “older agents” used in stewardship on clinical outcomes
  • Virology: Targeting viruses with pre-existing resistance to licensed therapies
  • Antibiotic Adjuvants: Antibiotic adjuvants i.e. resistance breakers (such as efflux pump inhibitors, uptake enhancers e.g. polymyxin B nonapeptide)
  • Molecular Mechanisms of Antimicrobial Resistance (including bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses)
  • Informatics: Computational approaches to understand and combat antimicrobial resistance, including global epidemiology of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance, computer aided drug design, electronic approaches for improved antimicrobial stewardship.


Deadline: 28 February 2019, at 23:59 GMT/UK time
