The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is awarding more than $3.2 million in cooperative agreement funding to create antimicrobial resistance dashboards. These public-private partnerships will improve access to information on antimicrobial resistance in domesticated animals, including livestock, poultry and companion animals.
The 12 awards will help advance scientific knowledge around antimicrobial resistance through partnerships with the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, Cornell University, Iowa State University, University of Florida, North Carolina State University, Texas Tech University, University of Illinois, University of Missouri and University of Washington.
