The 3rd EnviroAMR WORKSHOP!

The workshop entitled “The utilization of DNA markers for molecular identification of microbial strains “ has taken place on February 3, 2016 at Institute of Biological Research Cluj-Napoca (branch of NIRDBS). Our 3rd EnviroAMR workshop focused on PCR technique, Sanger sequencing and on building theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular identification of bacterial strains. The workshop provided hands-on training to the stakeholders and all the participants. We would like to thank to everybody present for their participation and involvement in this project.!

The 2nd EnviroAMR WORKSHOP!

The second EnviroAMR workshop aimed at transferring practical knowledge to the stakeholders was a success! The event took place on October 26th and was focused on environmental DNA isolation methods and techniques. We thank everybody present for their involvement in the event and for their good wishes towards the EnviroAMR project!

Purpose and Beneficiaries

The EnviroAMR project will raise awareness on the fact that antibiotics and antimicrobial resistant microorganisms are considered novel classes of pollutants in the environment with major consequences on the health of humans, animals and plants. The EU Parliament and the World Health Organisation have both recently recognized that due to misuse, overuse or impropal disposal, the level of antibiotics and resistant miroorganisms that enter the environment is increasing. All parties agree that a sustained effort is needed towards implementing state-of-the-art methods that will lead to a better monitorization of antibiotic residues and resistance and towards continuous improvement of methods for mitigation of these pollutants in surface waters, groundwater and in the environments directly linked to the water health and safety.

The EnviroAMR project will propose a methodological guide for a standardized monitorization of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance in the environment through a chemical and biological (phenotypic, genotypic, metagenomic) approach together with techniques of antibiotic and resistance mitigation in wastewaters. Such guide is missing in Romania and, from our knowledge, in the EU. By its use in future studies it will help compare data from different target locations so that comprehensive strategies for reduction of these hazardous substances in the environment can be proposed. The project will also provide hands-on trainings for several methods proposed with representatives from stakeholders.

The beneficiaries of the EnviroAMR project are public entities and stakeholders directly involved in implementing strategies for a clean and healthy environment. By implementing this project, the Project Promoter together with its parteners will form a group with solid knowledge in environmental studies of pollution with antibiotics and antibiotic resistant microorganisms. Their expertise will be used either by transfer to stakeholders or through collaboration in future projects aimed at providing a better environment for us all. The monitorization scheme proposed will benefit the entire human population and animal husbandry because will contribute to clean and safe surface waters and groundwater that are of great importance to society.
