CSIR-CFTRI will conduct a two-day workshop on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in food chain at the Silver Jubilee Hall, M&FT department, CSIR-CFTRI, Mysuru, between 9:30am and 5:30pm on March 26 and 27, 2020. The event, which will be sponsored by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), will be organised by the Department of Microbiology and Fermentation technology(M&FT), CSIR-CFTRI.

The number of candidates for this workshop is restricted to 40, and admission will be on first come first serve basis. The candidates will have to register by March 5, 2020 by paying a registration fee of Rs 2050 (inclusive of GST [Goods and Services Tax] and bank usage charges).
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the most crucial public health problems these days. The overuse and misuse of antibiotics in different sectors, especially in animal husbandry and agriculture, aid in increasing the presence of antimicrobial organisms through food chain. Colistin resistance bacteria, found in vegetables, is one such example. AMR is being viewed as a shared challenge that requires a vigorous response in all including human, veterinary, fishery and environment.

The workshop will highlight the recent developments in the field of antimicrobial resistance in food chain. It will create an awareness among the people about the importance and judicious use of antibiotics.

“It will discuss in detail about the methods of detection and control of emerging resistant micro-organisms to extend the research horizon; focus on the regulatory provisions to limit the use of antibiotics, and emphasise on how healthy living can be managed by daily food supplements,” said the organisers.

Researchers and scientists, lecturers and professors, students from universities and colleges, industrial delegates with background of microbiology, biotechnology, dairy and food technology who intend to work/currently working on antimicrobial resistance can apply.

The main focus of ICMR is to create focussed research on the health problems of the vulnerable sections of the society that encourages the use of modern biology tools in addressing health concerns of the country.

In order to achieve its mandate, the Council has been organising national/international conferences, symposia and workshops regularly for the dissemination of knowledge. Its  research priorities coincide with the national health priorities with a view to reduce the total burden of disease and to promote health and well-being of the population.

At CSIR-DFRL, the food safety research is being carried out in the different Translational Research and Technology Development departments. In addition, gut microbial diversity, genomics and bio-sensing and detection of antibiotic residues will be assessed. Novel antimicrobial from food bacteria from synthetic and natural sources will also be evaluated.
