The National Institute of Antimicrobial Resistance Research and Education (NIAMRRE) is a member organization that drives cross-sector engagement and coordinated action to combat the global threat of Antimicrobial Resistance across humans, animals, and the environment. To achieve our mission, we have identified four distinct focus areas: research, education, collaboration, and advocacy.

  • Advancing AMR research through the cultivation of networks and resources

  • Improving knowledge and stewardship of AMR through training and outreach

  • Convening cross-sector AMR stakeholders for the purpose of action

  • Raising awareness of AMR and advocating for AMR-specific funding


NIAMRRE connects people, resources, and ideas to accelerate and synergize efforts to combat antibiotic resistance.
We create meaningful, action-oriented relationships that enable a shared vision across the animal-human-environment AMR system.


Our members are groups and organizations that have an interest in collaboratively combating antibiotic resistance and promoting stewardship efforts. This includes a wide variety of audiences such as researchers, educators, health professionals, and industry representatives.


NIAMRRE Structure - NIAMRRE governance consists of a Leadership Council, Executive Director, Operations Center, and Advisory Council.

NIAMRRE is composed of a Leadership Council, Executive Director, Operations Center, and Advisory Council.

  • The Leadership Council provides fiscal oversight, leads strategic planning activities, approves and monitors all programs and services, and oversees the Executive Director and Operations Center.
  • The Executive Director and Operations Center staff provide day-to-day support of all NIAMRRE activities and serve stakeholders by coordinating and facilitating interactions between groups.
  • The primary role of the Advisory Council is to advise the Leadership Council on recommended short term activities as well as prioritization of NIAMRRE efforts. One Advisor from each paid member organization will participate on the Advisory Council.

“Antimicrobial resistance touches each of us in our daily lives. NIAMRRE provides a great resource for the entire country as we work to build strong, collaborative research and educational programs to mitigate this risk.”
