AMR has been identified as one of the most pressing global challenges we face this century. Through projects such as IID3, we are able to learn more about AMR in foodborne pathogens with the aim of supporting work to prevent the spread. Part of our World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week (WAAW) series of blogs.
For World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week, the Pathogen Surveillance in Agriculture, Food and the Environment programme (PATH-SAFE) will be showcasing some of the antimicrobial resistance research activities that are underway across the programme.
It's World Antimicrobial Resistance Awareness Week (WAAW) and we want to share some insights into our latest Citizen Science projects. Citizen Science is when we co-create studies with people in the community. Our latest reports delve into the world of AMR in your home, specifically on home-grown food and on your chopping boards.
We hear from current members of our Scientific Advisory Committees (SACs) to find out about their roles, and to hear about their experience of being a SAC member.
One of the Food Standards Agency's ongoing commitments to food safety is surveillance. As part of this, we actively monitor the levels of infectious intestinal disease (IID) in the UK.
While we regularly review the number of confirmed IID cases, not all cases that occur in the UK population will be recorded by public health systems.
FSA Chief Executive Emily Miles updates on the Precision Breeding Bill, research into the perceived value of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme, and the Windsor Framework.
"There is a place in science for everybody!" Find out about what drove Dr Erica Kintz, Dr Sophie Hardy, and Mike Dickinson to careers in science and what they get up to in their day jobs at the Food Standards Agency.
We're celebrating British Science Week and this year's theme is 'connections'. We are kicking things off with our Chief Scientific Advisor, Robin May, discussing how he connects us to other Government departments.
We're looking for new members to join our Scientific Advisory Committees (SACs). This year, for the first time, we are looking for both full members and associate members. The latter category is specifically aimed at early and mid-career researchers.
Ahead of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we hear from some of the many women in the FSA who use science every day to keep food safe, on how they got into STEM.
